Capture an Insider's View
of the Aquarium

On this guided tour, you’ll get an insider’s look at the National Aquarium. Get a head start and see some of our most popular exhibits, including the new Blacktip Reef, before doors open to the public.

Journey to wild and wonderful Australia, where you’ll see an archerfish spit to catch his morning meal. You’ll get up close with one of our rain forest residents, and—if you’re feeling daring—you can even snack on a bug or two!

Stop by the kitchen to grab a few krill pops (special frozen treats for the fish) before heading to Atlantic Coral Reef where you’ll help feed some of the exotic animals that call this exhibit home.
