​We will stay open late exclusively for individuals and families wanting a quieter Aquarium experience with soft lighting, limited sounds, and other modifications. We hope that this special event will allow guests to enjoy the animals and exhibits at their own pace and ensure a comfortable visit for everyone, after the doors close to the general public at 5 pm.

Advanced registration is suggested and regular admission rates apply.

Please note:  One caretaker is admitted at no charge if they are working with a guest who is visiting the Aquarium. 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.
