【This event has already finished】
The summer night aquarium
The aquarium will host the "Summer night aquarium". Opening hours will be extended until 8 PM for your enjoyment.
We particularly recommend the "Night performance" which will see the dolphins leaping into the night skies, and the romantic atmosphere in the Southern building when the lights are dimmed.
The summer night aquarium takes place between July 21st and August 31st. Be sure to check it out!
