Being part of the Adventure Aquarium has its advantages. From now until August 25th, the Aquarium is open on weekdays at 9:30 a.m. for Members. Take advantage of early access to the Aquarium, as well as our one-of-a-kind exhibits with more than 8,500 aquatic species throughout two million gallons of water. Come see the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast, including the only great hammerhead shark on exhibit in the United States as well as two rare scalloped hammerhead sharks. Visit Button and Genny (our Nile hippos), our little blue penguins and cross Shark Bridge (a unique V-shaped rope suspension bridge just inches over Shark Realm) all before we are open to the public.
