You’ll see thousands of animals—representing more than 300 species—displayed in entertaining and educational exhibits.

Learn how the Virginia Aquarium’s staff conserve resources and help to protect animals and their habitats. You will meet with Aquarium staff and participate in hands-on activities to show you how to take action at home!
