About Us :

There are always more NEW things to see and do at Adventure Aquarium on the Camden, NJ Waterfront. Open 365 days a year from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, Adventure Aquarium continues to offer new opportunities for families to explore, discover and play. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a returning guest, you can count on new hands-on activities, new animals and exhibits and new moments of magic. 

Check out the all new KidZone, an enchanting playground “under the sea,” and experience seven different touch exhibits to get up close and personal with sharks, stingrays and more. Adventure Aquarium is the only aquarium in the world where you can see hippos nose-to-nose, and the only aquarium in the country with Great Hammerhead Sharks – among the largest and rarest of sharks! 

Add two million gallons of fun, a 40-foot suspended Shark Tunnel, a 4D Theater (sponsored by PSE&G) and free live shows and up-close animal experiences daily, and it’s clear to see why a trip to Adventure Aquarium promises to deliver family memories that will last a lifetime. 

Like its sister aquarium, the Newport Aquarium in Newport, KY, Adventure Aquarium is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA), which means its held to the absolute highest standards in animal care and exhibition.

Great place for a quick day trip. We were able to see everything in a few hours. Kids loved it. It is a little pricey for 1 visit for a family of 4, but the yearly membership has been a great value. They just renovated the cafeteria and added new food choices. The food is a little expensive but much better than it was. We sometimes bring your own lunch and eat it there.

I was traveling with a group of students when two of us had to unexpectedly overnight in Philly (thanks, American Airlines). So to kill time waiting for our flight the next day and to avoid the heat of the city we went to Adventure Aquarium. This is a great place to fill our time and was pretty engaging. They have several different touch tanks throughout the aquarium. The staff are incredibly nice. The walk over Shark Tank and the hippos had to absolutely be my favorite. during our visit they were remodeling the cafeteria and so are eating options were incredibly limited to a hot dog or cheeseburger at a snack bar but I imagine once the cafeteria is completed that things will get much better. Overall great visit.

Penguins, Hippos, Shark Tunnel, giant sea turtles. The shark tunnel was by far my favorite part. They also had a section where you could walk over the shark tank and that was a lot of fun. If you in the area I would definitely recommend stopping by and taking a look. Shark Tunnel is what sold me as I've been to my local aquarium plenty of times. Have a great time!

We have memberships this year and honestly this place is small. The visit is usually 2.5 to 3 hrs. My sons love sharks and the exhibit didn't have enough species. When taking my kids there for a second time, my 5 years old didn't want to go because it was boring. Do yourself a favor and go to the Baltimore Aquarium. The shark tank has many levels and overall it's a better aquarium with so much to see! We won't be getting memberships here anymore unless they expand some more.

It really is nice summer outing for you and the kids. This place has mastered the art of interactive learning. It isn't big and you can walk the entire aquarium in 2 hours max maybe 2.5 which all depends on how long you send at each site. To add its most all in doors so sun, snow, hail or rain you can still visit this place!
