Ranked Among the Best Aquariums in US
Adventure Aquarium was named among the best aquariums in the United States in 2013 by the Travel Channel. On its list of the “Best U.S. Aquariums by Region,” the Travel Channel highlighted Adventure Aquarium as one of the two best in the east, along with Baltimore’s National Aquarium. The report cited Adventure Aquarium’s Shark Tunnel and great hammerhead shark as two of the facility’s must-see attractions.
Since opening in 2005, Adventure Aquarium has welcomed more than seven million guests through its doors on the Camden Waterfront. The two million gallon facility is home to more than 8,500 aquatic species, including the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast, stingrays, penguins, sea turtles and seven touch experiences. It has the distinction of being the only aquarium in the country to exhibit great hammerhead sharks and the only aquarium in the world with hippos.
