Jenkinson’s Aquarium always has a new adventure in store for explorers
and animal enthusiasts of all ages. Since opening its doors in 1991,
Jenkinson’s Aquarium has dedicated itself to the conservation and
superior care of its diverse collection of animals and visitor education.
Current exhibits include their South African penguins, who welcomed two
new members in 2015, the completely expanded and renovated Harbor
Seals exhibit and the new Pine Barrens exhibit. Other attractions, such as
the touch tank, allow visitors to get up close and personal with live animals.
Knowledgeable staff members are always on hand to answer questions
and offer new insights. The aquarium is open year round, closing only on
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. For more information about
