Toddler Tuesday is a program for young children (0-2 years old) and their families that runs from November 6 through March 26, from 10 am to 12 pm, with a themed storytime at 11:45.
This experience features discounted admission rates for groups with young children, themed activity stations, parent resources for exploring the Aquarium, and SCUBA divers feeding fish in the largest tanks.
Each week Aquarium educators create a new activity station and exhibit guide to match the monthly theme. Toddler Tuesday is self-guided; there is no class to attend. Families are welcome to take their own pace as they explore the Aquarium with week-specific themed exhibit guide, stop by the activity station, and join us at 11:00 a.m. to see our daily Great Fish, Great Lakes program (often with SCUBA divers hand-feeding the fish).
