Seahorses: Unbridled Fun

The Newport Aquarium, in Newport, Kentucky, was recently voted the Number 1 aquarium by the USA Today. Over the years it has showcased thousands of animals in more than one million gallons of water. Their current exhibition, “Seahorses: Unbridled Fun,” is an interactive adventure where you can learn about sea dragons, trumpetfish, shrimpfish, and pipefish. There’s lots of hands-on learning, here, as kids can create a digital seahorse at the Seahorse Creation Station and touch giant seahorses at the Seahorse Sculptures. This interactive exhibit also features a game for your smartphone, Seek & Find, where use apply your newfound knowledge to spot seahorses hiding in the coral reef. Newport Aquarium also features two behind the scenes tours, the Backstage Animal Experience and Penguin Encounters, where you’ll learn how staff care for and feed the animals.
