In honor of Veterans Day, the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher offers free admission to all visitors on Monday, November 11. The Aquarium will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The three North Carolina Aquariums waive admission fees for all visitors twice a year – on November 11 for Veterans Day and on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday in January. The Aquariums have designated free admission days each year since 1994 to assure that everyone has an opportunity to enjoy the facilities.
In addition to free day, the Aquarium will host another popular camp for children ages 5 to 12.
“AquaCamp: Aquatic Critters,” Monday, November 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m
Children are invited to participate in a special day at the Aquarium. Campers learn about various animals living in our watery environments from alligators to wood ducks. Games, crafts, live animal presentations and more are all part of this exciting program. Join the fun! Snacks are provided. Kids will need to bring a bag lunch. Ages 5-12. Fee is $40 per participant. PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED.
