Shark Sleepover

National Aquarium – Shark Sleepover
Photo by National Aquarium

This night at the Aquarium is every shark lover’s dream! With the help of our finned friends, you’ll debunk myths about sharks and discover just how important these incredible animals are to the health of our ocean.

Explore the Aquarium after we’ve closed to the public and learn about sharks in our interactive Shark Lab. After a kid-friendly dinner, you’ll have the chance to experience one of our 4-D Immersion films.

An expert guide will lead you through special behind-the-scenes areas of the Aquarium. You can even dare to walk the shark catwalk, where our largest sharks swim silently just inches below.

As the night winds down, set up your sleeping bag and fall asleep under the watchful eye of our blacktip reef sharks. In the morning, after a continental breakfast, we’ll test your knowledge in a spirited, shark-inspired trivia game.
