About the aquarium

The National Aquarium Washington D.C. is the oldest aquarium in the USA. It is situated on the lowest floor of the building of Herbert C. Hoover, accessible to public since 1932. The building is also the residence of the Ministry of Trade and is known as the Department of Commerce Building. In 2008, the whole building was reconstructed and modernized, as well as all the exhibitions. The most popular attractions include the exhibition about the Everglades National Park (state Florida ) with alligators and the Amazonian forest, where visitors can admire, from a safe distance, piranhas and electric eels. There are exhibitions dedicated to plants and animals (especially endangered amphibians) from great American rivers, such as the Rio Grande or the Colorado River. The tour around the aquarium takes about 45 minutes and is thus suitable for families with children.


The aquarium is easily accessible on foot from the subway station The Federal Triangle (orange and blue line.
