Join us as we invite families with children or adults with special needs to visit the Aquarium after we close to the general public. See all of our animals and exhibits in a calm, comfortable environment and explore at your own pace. The event begins at 6 p.m. and continues until 7:30 p.m.

Enjoy a very special sensory-friendly showing of Superpower Dogs beginning at 5:30 p.m. before the official start to the evening's event. ​ Participants can experience the movie with special sound and light modifications and are welcome to move around freely, as needed.  Receive a complimentary movie ticket with each movie ticket purchased. (Valid only for August 21, 2019 5:30 p.m. showing and tickets for the evening event must be purchased onsite to receive the special movie rate.)

Advanced registration is suggested and regular admission rates apply.

A caretaker is defined as a required attendant without whom the guest could not tour the Aquarium. The disabled guest may request an additional caretaker be admitted at 50% of the regular admission.
