Looking for a fun outing for the whole family? The Portland Aquarium is the perfect pick for an awesome (and educational!) experience. From examining colorful fish to petting stingrays, your little ones will have the time of their lives at the Aquarium.

Who said aquariums only had fish? The Portland Aquarium doesn’t stop there, offering an array of sharks, fish, reptiles, and even birds! Kiddos can touch and feed sharks and stingrays, among lots of other types of fish. They can even interact with and feed one of the Aquarium’s Giant Pacific Octopuses. Thanks to the many child-height exhibits, your little ones won’t have any problems getting up close and personal with some amazing animals. Keep the Portland Aquarium in mind the next time you’re planning a birthday party, too—complete with an educational tour, party tables, and friendly staff to help host, you won’t have to worry about a thing!

The Portland Aquarium’s convenient location makes it super easy to visit on a weekend or a weekday, and the admissions prices are a steal. Kiddos ages 2 and under get in free, ages 2-11 are $7.95, ages 12 and up are $10.95 and seniors (55+) and military get in for $9.95. Also, consider snapping up an annual membership (a family annual membership is now 50% off and runs for only $59.98), which grants cool perks like discounts, early entrance on weekends and holidays, special VIP events, and guest admission discounts.  For an extended period of time, enjoy 50% off family memberships, Sleep With the Sharks, and birthday parties. Daily tickets purchased through the Portland Aquarium website are $1 off.

Whether you’re hoping to have a fun outing with the family or a perfect birthday party for your little one, the Portland Aquarium is the perfect choice. With 2,500 species on exhibit, you can be sure that everyone in your group will find something that captures their imagination.
