Add some science fun to the season with family friendly Holiday Happenings at Mote Aquarium. Head to the open-air courtyard and get slimy at the squid dissection station, investigate coral health at the ocean chemistry station and make an eco-friendly craft at our creativity station. For children ages 2–5, we will also have Shark Pups and Grown Ups* activities where little ones and their grown up can explore science tools and do ocean-themed yoga.
These stations will be open for fun from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. on Dec. 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 and 30.
Add a Holiday Happenings pass to your Aquarium admission for just $7 ($6 for Mote Members). PLEASE NOTE: Only guests who have valid Aquarium admission may add a Holiday Happenings pass. Holiday Happenings pass is only valid on specific dates and ticket and/or member admission must be on the same date. One pass per participating child must be purchased.
Advanced purchase is highly recommended as a limited number of passes will be sold per hour. Wristbands will be issued at the ticket counter on the day of your visit.
