Today, we are home to more than 15,000 aquatic animals and offer once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to explore life underwater through up-close animal encounters, interactive touch exhibits, and the chance to see and learn about some of the ocean’s rarest and most fascinating species, all while just minutes from Center City Philadelphia.

“Adventure Aquarium is a perfect family day! Entertaining, educational and fun. ❤️”
“The "Behind the Scenes" tour was immensely educational and inspiring. Would recommend purely for that experience.”
“This was a great place to visit. The shark tunnel and shark bridge were highlights for our whole group, but the great hammerhead in the ocean tank was something else. This was definitely one of the best aquariums we have been to.”
“Tons of exhibits and plenty of hands-on activities for kids of all ages. Wonderful huge tanks filled with sharks and rays. The kids had a blast and the entire facility was clean and well-kept. It was well worth the drive to stay nearby and spend a day here.”
“A well-designed aquarium perfect for kids and adults. It’s very interactive, the views are great in every tank, and the hippos and the blue penguins are a truly unique addition. Love that the 3d movie is included, and all of the feedings are a nice touch!”
