Nature Storytime

Members can now enjoy a BRAND-NEW program that is included with their Aquarium Membership. Nature Storytime will include a special storybook reading and activity. Enjoy a fun moment especially for your toddler before the Aquarium opens.

This program is for children aged 2-4 years and their parent(s). Siblings under age 2 may attend if they remain in their stroller or carrier for the duration of the program. Other unregistered participants may not attend.

Check-in:
As early as 9:00 a.m.
No later than 9:10 a.m.

Story Time:
9:15 – 10:00 a.m.

As this event is before the Aquarium opens to the public, participants must remain with the group and will not be allowed to explore the Aquarium until it opens at 10:00 a.m. Guests must check in at the Welcome Center at 9:00 a.m. before the whole group is escorted up to the activity location. We cannot accommodate late arrivals.
