Aquarium of Niagara

The Aquarium of Niagara offers a range of interactive experiences and programs to help your students learn about aquatic ecosystems. Visiting groups can join a touch tank and get hands-on with invertebrates, attend sea lion shows to learn about animal rehabilitation, and watch animal feedings to learn about their care. Our outreach program can come to you with marine invertebrates and provide an up-close experience with our touch tank or squid dissection. Create lifelong memories with our 40 Winks Under the Sea sleepover program where groups will take part in animal trivia, science experiments, create crafts, experience the touch tank, and snooze with our sea lions, all with snacks included. The aquarium is your aquatic education resource when visiting one of the water wonders of the world!
