Spring Discovery Days


Saturday, March 11 – Sunday, April 16, 10am – 5pm

Did you know that dwarf seahorses are only about one inch long as adults or that little Eastern musk turtles emit a big odor to deter predators? Have you noticed there is no webbing between a green-and-black poison dart frog’s toes or seen the disk on a Northern clingfish’s belly that lets it suction tightly to slimy or rocky surfaces? While the ragged-tooth sandtiger sharks gliding through the Aquarium’s 230,000-gallon shark habitat are always going to make a big impression, we are inviting guests to stop and  appreciate some of the smaller species with contests, daily animal encounters and activities.

And, on Thursdays, March 16, 23 & 30 and April 6 & 13 from 11am – 3pm, Northeast Ohio traveling animal educator Nora the Explorer will give guests of all ages the opportunity to learn about, get close to and even touch some remarkable little critters.

Also, anyone who completes A Little Trivia online during Spring Discovery Days will be entered to win a prize pack ($250 value) that  includes a seahorse plush, a drawstring backpack, one-year Annual Pass (or extension on a current membership) and Aquarium-branded gear.
