Extreme Makeover: Aquarium Edition

The National Aquarium in DC has a fresh face!Did you know that there is an aquarium in Washington, DC? And that it is the oldest aquarium in the nation?

Thanks to a partnership with the National Aquarium in Baltimore that included a five-year renovation effort to improve habitat conditions, animal care, and the facility’s appearance, the National Aquarium in Washington DC has been given a fresh face! Serving visitors since 1931 from the lower level of the Department of Commerce building, the newly refurbished National Aquarium debuts as home to “America’s Aquatic Treasures,” with over 200 species including shark, eel, gators, the invasive snakehead fish, and a new adorable baby loggerhead turtle!

The National Aquarium in Washington DC is a well-spent 45-minute tour, particularly if you’re looking for a cool, underwater experience and a respite from DC’s oppressive summer heat! Click here for details!

    The DC facility looks amazing. Don’t miss the little loggerhead – it’s absolutely adorable.

    I’ve been visiting the DC Aquarium every couple of months since I moved to the area a couple of years ago. This weekend was my first visit since you did the revamp and it’s simply fantastic. A very welcome improvement, especially since I rarely have the time to get out to Baltimore. I love your native freshwater tanks and the planted Amazon is stunning. Congrats.
