Adventure Aquarium is set to unveil its largest renovation since it first opened its doors in 2005.
On March 31, the new KidZone opens its doors to the public, a $1 million project geared towards connecting kids with nature in a hands-on experience.
“We’ve designed every last detail of the exhibit for families with children six and under, and the result is a dedicated space where kids can connect with animals by doing what they do best – play,” Executive Director Kevin Keppel said in a statement.
The new KidZone features animals and touch species, characters and a series of interactive activities the aquarium says are designed to promote learning through play.
On Saturday, the aquarium opened the doors for a preview of the new exhibit, complete with a red carpet leading up to the front entrance.
KidZone is located on the second floor of Adventure Aquarium in Zone C.
