Welcome to the 2016–2017 School Year!

We’re excited about our program offerings for the 2016–2017 school year. A visit to the Aquarium is your students’ passport to discovering the world’s aquatic biodiversity. With thousands of creatures on display, a visit to Via Aquarium will engage your students’ senses. In addition to the spectacular view from the underwater tunnel, children can get involved at the interactive touch tank or our augmented reality sandbox. With so much to see and experience, you will take learning beyond the classroom and into a new underwater world.All programs support the NGSS and NYS Curriculum. Our website has downloadable teacher booklets with classroom activities to help prepare your students for the program and facilitate discussion following your visit.
