Newport Aquarium

Make your way through more than 200 feet of acrylic tunnels, where you’re fully surrounded by water with hundreds of species of fish swimming by. Come face-to-face with exotic shark rays, Scooter and Sweet Pea, and say hi to Denver, the friendly Loggerhead Sea Turtle. Meet two rare white alligators, get up close and personal with stingrays, watch penguins play, or brave the first-of-its-kind Shark Bridge. There is so much to experience when you dive head first into family fun at the Newport Aquarium!

This 100,000 square-foot facility is located at Newport on the Levee, just a short walk or drive from Downtown Cincinnati. Not only is the Newport Aquarium home to a vast array of marine life, they also have many outreach programs that seek to educate the public and promote ocean conservation. 

Whether you’re here on vacation or looking for things to do for your weekend staycation, Newport Aquarium has something for the whole family on your next trip to Northern Kentucky.
