AAA Editor Notes
Adventure Aquarium is on the banks of the Delaware River at 1 Riverside Dr. Sea life and wildlife can be seen and touched in a variety of exhibits, including KidZone, an interactive exhibit designed specifically for kids. Shark Realm, a 40-foot walk-through tunnel, houses more than 20 sharks and 850 other marine animals. For an alternate view of the exhibit, guests can walk above it on the rope-suspension Shark Bridge. Hippo Haven houses hippopotamuses and porcupines. Little Blue Beach is home to tiny blue penguins. Films shown in a 4-D theater depict the wonders of underwater life. A Swim with the Sharks snorkeling program and special behind-the-scenes animal adventures also are offered.
Ferry/trolley service to the museum is available to and from the riverfront in Philadelphia Memorial Day through Labor Day.
