Aquarium Overnights

Sleep among thousands of fish in the galleries of the Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park.

Did you know that Sea stars eat with their stomachs inside-out or that sharks grow new teeth their whole lives? Learn about what dinner time is like for ocean creatures through up-close animal encounters, hands-on activities, and a special keeper animal feeding. Then, sleep among thousands of fish in the galleries of the Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park.

Family Overnights begin at 7 p.m. and end at 10 a.m. the following day. The minimum participant age is 5 years old. Participants 17 years and under must be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years old. Limit four children per adult.

Aquarium Overnights are offered seasonally to organizational groups (i.e. scouts, schools, youth groups) as well. Activities are targeted for groups with youth between 5 and 15 years old. We require one adult chaperone per five children registered.
