The long-anticipated Electric City Aquarium & Reptile Den is officially open! If you’ve visited the Marketplace at Steamtown in the past few months, you’ve likely been patiently awaiting this day, just like me.
Prepare yourself for over 20,000 square feet of magic. The Electric City Aquarium and Reptile Den focuses on education and conservation, sharing their goal with everyone who visits the beautiful creatures within their facilities.
Adults and children alike will lose themselves among the vibrant colors of the coral reefs and fish and power of the Black Tip Reef Shark. The aquarium also features an octopus, electric eel, Black Diamond Stingray, clownfish, and more.
In the reptile den, you’ll find everything from a Tarantula to a Fly River Turtle. All the while, experts will educate you on the various animals you’ll see in the reptile den. Here, they hope to demystify these beautiful creatures through exposure and education.
Their hope of inspiring children into a possible future career of Marine Biology or wildlife conservation are strong and absolutely inspiring.
