Marquee Exhibit

Stuffed Animal CARE-ium

List of Exhibits

A variety of plush toy animals await veterinarian care from youngsters in this special summer exhibit open now through Labor Day!

This fun and adorable exhibit will let young guests pretend to use the tools of real veterinarians to care for, diagnose and treat plush-animal patients. Interactive displays will let children choose a plush animal and then weigh it, take its blood pressure, bind a wound or even take an x-ray.

Other displays give young guests the chance to prepare “foods” for their animal, look through a microscope, and consider actual skeletons of the plush-animal species.

The “Stuffed Animal CARE-ium” is best for ages 10 and under. Children must be accompanied in the exhibit by a parent or guardian. Children can bring their own plush animals into the exhibit, although certain “tests” will only work with toys provided by the Aquarium.

The “Stuffed Animal CARE-ium” will be free with Aquarium admission.
