Aquarium of Niagara
There's an ocean of discovery to experience at Niagara's other "wet wonder," the Aquarium of Niagara. An excellent addition to any Niagara Falls trip, the aquarium has over 30 exhibits, 200 aquatic animal species and daily penguin, shark and tidal pool feedings for people of all ages to enjoy.
Located just a few blocks away from Niagara Falls State Park, the Aquarium of Niagara has educational exhibits that encourage animal conservation and the highest quality of animal care.
More than 1,500 aquatic animals live at the Niagara Falls aquarium, representing ecosystems ranging from the Great Lakes to coral reefs. Highlights of the Niagara aquarium include over 40 exhibits starring California sea lions, Peruvian penguins, seahorses, sturgeon and more.
Outside, visitors can enjoy the vibrant life-sized painting of a whale, known as the Whaling Wall, created by famed environmental marine life artist Wyland. The Whaling Wall offers a glimpse of the underwater world waiting inside the Niagara Falls aquarium.
Aquarium admission is available for individual purchase, or as part of the value-added Niagara Falls USA Discovery Pass.
