The Virginia Aquarium, or more formally the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, is located right off of the Rudee Inlet, in Virginia Beach. This is certainly the perfect spot for excellent marine life diversity.
Here at this spectacular aquarium you will explore tanks of over 800,000 gallons full of vibrant animal life, the entire complex considered to be one of the best aquariums and animal habitats in the entire country. Enjoy plenty of fun hands-on exhibits, nature paths, and marshland adventures while here, as well as the always fun Adventure Park, a zip-liner's paradise. Children will love the Smokey the Bear interaction, Mermaid Mondays, and Big Screen Saturdays, and everyone will enjoy the Sea Adventures, National Geographic 3D Theater, Big Science exhibits, and food and shopping opportunities.
Here you will encounter two full gift shops providing the best educational gifts and toys, as well as the scenic Aquarium Cafe, Otter Snack Bar, and Theater Snack Bar.
