There’s an ocean of discovery to experience at Niagara’s other “wet wonder,” the Aquarium of Niagara, located just a few blocks away from Niagara Falls State Park.
More than 1,500 aquatic animals live at the Niagara Falls aquarium, representing ecosystems ranging from the Great Lakes to coral reefs. Highlights include over 40 exhibits starring California sea lions, Peruvian penguins, seahorses, sturgeon and more.
Outside, the vibrant Whaling Wall created by famed environmental marine life artist Wyland gives a glimpse of the underwater world waiting inside the Aquarium of Niagara.
