Walk the red carpet and meet the Sea-Stars of the Aquarium this Summer with our snazziest holiday theme yet! You won’t want to miss out on the incredible activities we’ve got planned with our amazing ‘SEA-lebrities’ theme!
Every School Holiday the National Marine Aquarium showcases a different aspect of the marine world with an awesome new theme and this Summer will be no different as it’s bound to educate, inspire, and amaze!
It’s going to be a jam-packed six weeks: each week we’ll be celebrating a different sea animal, showcasing what makes them incredible and vital to the marine world in a series of fantastic shows by our Discovery and Learning team.
There’ll be no shortage of activities at the NMA either! You’ll be able to join the red carpet, vote on species in a series of heads to heads, visit our Sealife Selfie Stations, meet our Papara-sea and, get involved with some Media Myth-Busting! And with our new Soft Play area, there’ll be loads to do for an wonderful day out. Plus every visit will be supporting the conservation marine species like our Sea-lebrities both within the Aquarium and around the globe!
It may seem like far too much to fit in one day…so fortunately we’re extending our opening hours! From the 21st July to the 31st of August, we’ll be opening from 9:30 and closing at 18:00 (last admission 17:00). And don’t forget, all our tickets come with a free annual pass so you can return as much as you like throughout.
With our focus on ‘Sea-lebrity’ marine animals we’ll be focusing on some of the ‘flagship’ species of the marine world. This means that they are popular, charismatic species which serve as symbols and rallying points to help encourage conservation awareness and action. We have lots of these flagship species at the NMA, like Friday the green sea turtle! As for our other flagship SEA-lebrity species…you’ll have to wait and see!
We can’t wait to see you at the Aquarium this Summer Holiday!
