Village Voice's Description

The New York Aquarium is just about the only thing open on Coney Island during the winter (actually it's open 365 days a year). With a typical array of sharks, rays, otters, whales and other fish, the aquarium t is the only one in the city and has a long history (it used to be in Battery Park in 1896). Not only that, it still manages to properly evoke old-time Coney Island while remaining modern, which is a feat.

All others: Mon-Fri 10am-5pm, Sat & Sun 10am-5:30pm

    the sharks are actually not that exciting (sorry, boys). go talk to the walruses for a bit instead. the big one's as old as i am!

    Not the most fancy aquarium, but it’s really enjoyable. Make sure you catch the sea lion show and encounter the sharks and penguins.

    This place is a zoo. (Too many people!)

  • Len ❤. on 01/13/14

    Great place for kids of all ages! Great beauty beneath the sea!

  • Admission on Fridays from 3pm until closing is pay-what-you-wish. Fun fact: This is America's oldest aquarium, dating to 1896.
