Sleep next to the sharks during an Aquarium Overnight, a special family-friendly sleepover. Learn about aquarium animals, play games, make crafts and more. Pre-registration is required and space is limited, so reserve your space today by calling (505)-848-7180.

Overnighters learn interesting facts about ocean species and their nighttime behavior. You'll have access to the Invertebrate Touchpool and Shark & Ray Encounter to see some aquatic creatures up close. Later, try your hand at our aquarium-themed crafts and game show. Then, sit back and watch an ocean film fest in the Aquarium Theater before drifting to sleep next to the 285,000 gallon Shark Tank.
