If you would like to visit the City Museum before or after your scheduled tour at the Aquarium, their basic admission is $12 per person.

  • Due to the fact that we are escorting tour participants through City Museum, we cannot allow tour participants to go through the World Aquarium on their own. All guests must be escorted back to the entrance of City Museum at the end of the tour.

Have you ever done anything really scary? Well, only the most adventurous and daring people (age 12+) should come on this tour! Would you stick your hand in a tank of giant cockroaches?

Touch and interact with scorpions, stingrays, sharks, cockroaches, millipedes and many more freaky creatures. Be prepared to be brave.
