“The Best Aquarium in New Jersey”
There are always more NEW things to see and do at Adventure Aquarium on the Camden Waterfront, featuring 2 million gallons of water and 8,500 animals. See an entire colony of African Penguins, walk through a free-flight aviary, or come face-to-face with stingrays, rare shark species and giant Loggerhead and Green Sea Turtles in the 760,000-gallon Ocean Realm exhibit. Be sure to check out the plentiful hands-on touch experiences, where you can hand-feed gentle stingrays, roll up your sleeves to touch live sharks, or reach in to touch an impressive collection of colorful sea critters. The fifth largest aquarium in the country, Adventure Aquarium is the only aquarium in the world with hippos and the only aquarium in the U.S. to exhibit Great Hammerhead Sharks. See the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast, including the 550,000-gallon Shark Realm exhibit, a 40-foot suspended Shark Tunnel, and from June 23 through September 3, see Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived, a traveling exhibit produced by the Florida Museum of Natural History with support from the National Science Foundation and sponsored locally by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey. Don’t miss KidZone, a new play space for kids 6 and under featuring new and returning animals and touch species, as well as interactive games and activities like “Pop Up” exhibits that provide an insider’s view of the fish. Adventure Aquarium also features a 4D Theater (sponsored by PSE&G) and FREE live shows and up-close animal experiences.
Nice aquarium but very expensive. Kids 12 and up and adults $28 a ticket, $10 to park. Good exhibits but small for the price
I love aquariums and have visited them all over and this is one of the best. Especially good for young kids.
Nice aquarium but always crazy crowded making it impossible to see anything
Usually, aquariums are geared toward children. I had more fun here than most of the children around me. The stingray tank was easy to reach so smaller kids could actually reach them and a lot of the animals had personalities; one sting ray would actually flap water at us if we ignored him until we finally gave in and rubbed his back. You also get to feed the stingrays, which was an awesome experience. The hippo section was being remolded, so I was somewhat upset, but I did get to take a picture with a giant hippo statue. I would go there again in a heartbeat!
