The National Aquarium and its Animal Care and Rescue Center will be closed through April 26 in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). CLICK HERE for more information.

Girl Scouts


Your Boy or Girl Scout group can travel to an Australian river gorge, explore a tropical rain forest, get hands-on with rays and jellies in Living Seashore, and hang with the sharks in Blacktip Reef. As if that weren't enough to make the trip memorable, Scouts can also participate in special events and programming developed especially for them.
