Meet an ambassador animal and participate in a guided activity with our standard virtual program or create your own customized experience!
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.
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).
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.
