Special Needs

ACCESSIBILITY:

Adventure Aquarium and the Center for Aquatic Sciences are committed to providing an unforgettable education experience for all students. During your field trip, Aquarium cast members are always available throughout the building to assist you with special accommodations. 

Adventure Aquarium is fully accessible for students in wheelchairs. There are also a limited number of wheelchairs available at the information desk for use at no charge. A fully refundable $10 deposit is required. Wheelchairs cannot be reserved. They are on a first come, first served basis. 

Restrooms are conveniently located in the Lobby/Entrance, Zone B, Zone C and the Skyline Room. All are wheelchair accessible and large enough to accommodate a personal assistant. Please inquiry at the Information Desk if you require a larger family restroom.

Many of our exhibits include components that provide your students with a multisensory experience including various lights, colors, textures and sounds. Some encourage manipulation utilizing fine and gross motor skills. For a student in need of a quiet area, the Nursing Station located in in Zone B near the 4D Theater entrance is available.

Between September and March, the aquarium has smaller crowds and less noise, making it an ideal time to bring students.

Exhibit companions, chaperone guides and scavenger hunts can be found in the Teacher Resources section. These resources will provide information and activities to help you prepare for your field trip, as well as focus and enhance your aquarium visit.  Center for Aquatic Sciences at Adventure Aquarium educators are available to answer questions and help with logistics to maximize your educational experience at Adventure Aquarium. Feel free to call 856-365-1023 or email tlearning@aquaticsciences.org for more information.
