Walk-through adventures await everyone at this dynamic, hands-on aquarium

Get hands-on with all sorts of aquatic creatures at the Living Shores Aquarium, located at Story Land. Watch otters frolic, clownfish and angelfish glide and tropical lorikeets flit from perches in a walk-through aviary. See tortoises and other reptiles and amphibians. Touch pools let you run your fingers over rays, sharks, horseshoe and hermit crabs, large snails, sea urchins, shrimp and “nibble fish.” Learn about local marine life through staff-led educational talks, or sit at a drawing station to see how those creatures move through their watery environments. In a digital sandbox, kids can dig and discover marine life living on beaches. And everyone can enjoy Italian specialties at the aquarium restaurant, Pasta Mia (don’t miss the Sunday pizza buffet).
