"Living Seashore" at the National Aquarium

The National Aquarium’s newest exhibit

This interactive, 2,700-square-foot exhibit takes visitors beyond the boardwalk to the crashing waves, sandy beaches and shifting dunes of the ever-changing Mid-Atlantic seashore.

Explore the Sandy Shore

Guests can discover and learn about some of the beach’s hidden treasures, such as horseshoe crabs, sand dollars and egg cases on a tactile discovery wall.

Animal Touch Encounters and One-on-one Experiences

Visitors can join National Aquarium interpreters to gently graze their hand over the sleek, muscular wing of an Atlantic stingray; or feel the mysterious, firm bell of a pulsing moon jelly.

Discover the Beach’s Hidden Treasures

Explore mysterious objects washed up at the high tide line on an interactive, digital multi-touch table.
