Sensory Friendly Morning

Sensory friendly child guest with parent at ray touch pool
Location Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center

​We will open early exclusively for individuals and families wanting a quieter Aquarium experience with soft lighting, limited sounds, and other modifications. We hope that this special event will allow guests to enjoy the animals and exhibits at their own pace and ensure a comfortable visit for everyone before the doors open to the general public at 9:00am.

Advanced registration/timed ticketing is required and regular admission rates apply.

Please note: One caretaker will be admitted at no charge if they are working with a guest who is visiting the Aquarium. A caretaker is defined as a required medical attendant without whom the guest could not tour the Aquarium, and the guest may request an additional caretaker be admitted at 50% of the regular admission.
