Pre-School & Foundation
We love to inspire our youngest visitors, which is why we have developed the Mermaid Challenge. Children are able to explore the range of marine life we have at the Aquarium and have their imagination bought to life, by meeting ‘Marina the Mermaid’.
Marina, the Aquarium’s resident mermaid, will send a letter to your school before your visit. On the day, the children will search the Aquarium at their leisure and discover our mermaid hiding in her cave. After meeting the Marina, the children will write a postcard about their adventure to the National Marine Aquarium.
This visit allows teachers to independently take their students around the Aquarium. ‘The Deck’ will be available for safe storage of bags and coats. This area is also used as a lunch space if the weather is bad.
