St. Louis Children’s Aquarium has over 40,000 gallons of hands-on learning available for group visits. Within 1- 1 1/2 hours, our tour guides will take your children in small, personalized groups on a most amazing adventure in our indoor aquarium where you will go through Midwest caves, Amazon forests, and to the ocean. Guides are happy to answer questions about exhibits and animals. Our tours are adapted to meet the educational and attention level needs of kids 1 1/2 to 103 years of age. Pre-school and early elementary tour groups may include a story time, if time allows. Children will interact hands-on with fish, crab, and turtle touchpools, live animals, and plants as we study the water cycle, ecosystems, and biodiversity of each region. Antibacterial hand wipes are provided for everyone at the end of the tour.
