New York Aquarium
After visiting the New York Aquarium on July 22, 2019, I have a lot to share about the experience!
The New York Aquarium is located in Brooklyn, New York. The aquarium opens from 10 am to 3:30 pm. Admission costs $39.95 per person, and there is a parking lot just outside of the aquarium. When you go you should wear lightweight/ layers of clothing depending on what time of year it is. Because the park is near the ocean I would suggest bringing a sweatshirt because of the breeze from the ocean. You should also wear sneakers, you will be walking around a lot so if you have small children I would also suggest bringing a stroller or something to carry them in. You could bring your own food or snacks or you could buy the food in the park. Remember to pick up your trash so that none of it goes into the exhibits. Bring water bottles and a camera, you will want to take lots of pictures of the amazing wildlife in the exhibits.
If you decide to visit the aquarium I suggest seeing the sea lion show. You and your kids will get a kick out of the sea lions performance and will not hesitate to take a video.
You could also go and see the shark exhibit to see how amazing these creatures are. You will also get to use touchpads to learn facts about the sharks. You will also enjoy seeing the giant sea turtles and colorful fish. Just outside of the aquarium there is a boardwalk that leads to a small beach. I also recommend seeing the 4D movie about sea creatures and underwater life.
The amount of time you may need to see the aquarium would be 1 to 2 days depending on what you are interested in seeing. Lastly, here is what I thought about the New York Aquarium, my family, friends, and I all enjoyed it. We especially loved going to the beach and dipping our feet into the water.
