In response to COVID-19, we’ve made some essential changes to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
Enjoy the Aquarium from home with one of our virtual tour programs! Choose between our standard virtual program—a one-hour experience that features an animal encounter and a guided activity with an Aquarium educator—or a customized tour that fits your specific needs and budget and can feature anything from a personalized video message to a live virtual tour.
Standard Virtual Program
Our standard virtual program brings the National Aquarium to you! Each one-hour virtual visit is a unique experience that begins with an ambassador animal encounter and a Q&A session with our Animal Programs team, followed by a guided activity with an educator. Guests may choose from a guided ocean animal drawing or an Aquarium-themed trivia game.
This program costs $240 (non-members) and $190 (members) for your first device; the price for additional devices is $10 each.
Please note that we can't guarantee which animal ambassador will be participating in your program, but examples of the animal you may encounter include lizards, snakes, turtles or a hyacinth macaw (limited availability).
Custom Virtual Program
From personalized video messages to live virtual tours, a variety of options are available to you when you create a custom virtual program! Whether you're virtually celebrating a special occasion or simply looking for a fun online activity for your group, we'll customize your experience to fit your specific needs and budget.
Pricing for a custom virtual program begins at $50.
