Long Island Aquarium

Themed around the Lost City of Atlantis, Long Island Aquarium blends science and nature with myth to create an informative and entertaining environment for visitors of all ages.


This destination features one of the largest all-living coral reef displays in this hemisphere, a 120,000-gallon shark tank, African Penguins, Marmosets, and more than 100 exhibits.

Exhibits include the indoor Butterfly gardens and the Shark Dive where you’ll get in the cage and down into the Lost City of Atlantis Shark Exhibit.

Named a Top 10 Aquarium for Children by Parents Magazine, Long Island Aquarium is open daily 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M year-round (Closed Christmas & Thanksgiving Days).

“I’ve been here many times and each time with the grandkids. I enjoyed all the different colored and type fish. Sharks were fascinating.”
