Touching all sorts of underwater creatures was another highlight. Even my little miss was brave enough to touch a sting ray. Well, actually, I think he surprised her cause she thought she was just playing in the water. : ) But, she didn’t complain!
Aren’t sea jellies so beautiful? I think I could watch them for hours.
Oh & we saw this sea dragon, which by the way, I did not know existed. Sea horses, yes. Sea dragons, no. How cool is he?
Adventure Aquarium has some fun interactive exhibits. Here one of my littles is being silly with a friend in a dome which allows them to be “inside” a fish tank.
& Since the aquarium is located at the Camden waterfront, we enjoyed some great views of Philadelphia from inside the aquarium & just outside too.
P.S. – I should mention that besides taking in all the great sights, I did quiz my littles periodically to identify different facts – vertebrates/invertebrates, animal reproduction, etc. – and I also pointed out different things, like the use of Latin on the name placards, species, etc. Wouldn’t be a homeschooling mom if I didn’t, right? ; )
