Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center

The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center hosts over 800,000 gallons of aquariums and live animal habitats focusing on Virginia’s diverse and unique marine environment. With more than 300 hands-on exhibits, a nature trail, an aviary, two animal touch pools and a 3D IMAX® theater, a visit to the Aquarium can be fun and educational. To complete the experience there are two stores and a café. The Aquarium provides a unique backdrop for business and social events. Catering is provided by Sodexo. Seasonal boat trips, which include dolphin, winter wildlife, ocean collections and cruise the creek, also add a deeper dimension. The Aquarium’s newest exhibit gallery, Restless Planet adds an international touch with habitats that showcase exotic animals such as tomistomas, Egyptian cobras, spotted eagle rays and Komodo dragons.
