The Aquarium of Niagara is now open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and children’s admission will be just $10 for the remainder of the month of September.
“The fall season is a great time for Western New Yorkers, who may avoid Niagara Falls during the busy summer tourist season, to come to the aquarium,” President and CEO Gary Siddall said. “This time of year is typically marked by a decreased density of visitor traffic, which makes for a more relaxed atmosphere and engaging experience. As an important nonprofit cultural organization, we look forward to providing a safe, family-friendly environment during this shoulder season, and we are pleased to this offer this promotion as we embrace and celebrate our valued community.”
Per guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, visitors who are not fully vaccinated against the coronavirus are advised to wear masks while inside the Aquarium of Niagara.
Regularly scheduled sea lion shows, penguin feedings, and rescued seal presentations are included with admission, and visitors can find program times here. Guests can also enhance their visit by adding on one of the aquarium’s animal interaction programs, which include unique photo opportunities, the ability to meet a seal or penguin, and participation in a shark and stingray feeding session.
Admission is free for members, who do not need to reserve timed tickets online ahead of their visit. The venue recommends all other visitors purchase tickets online ahead of their visit to avoid a wait.
The Aquarium of Niagara is located at 701 Whirlpool St., Niagara Falls.
