The Horniman Museum and Gardens is offering free entry to its Aquarium on Saturday as part of its family-fun-packed activities for World Oceans Day.
Every year, World Oceans Day brings communities together to honour, help protect, and conserve the world’s shared ocean.
For World Oceans Day 2019, the Horniman is running a fun day of free activities to help visitors discover how they can become caretakers of our oceans.
As part of their free visit to the 15 tanks of coral reefs, mesmerising jellyfish and more, visitors will be the first to see a month-long pop-up Beat Plastic Pollution display throughout the Aquarium – created by the Horniman in support of the European Commission’s World aquariums #readytochange to #beatplasticpollution campaign – and be invited to make their own ocean pledge, to help preserve the health of the world’s oceans.
World Oceans Day fun on offer throughout the Horniman will include hands-on workshops with ocean objects, led by Aquarium staff and museum curators, two 6ft puppet ships which will be ‘flying’ around the Horniman, ‘Journey into the Deep’ creative storytelling and craft workshops, and curator talks about green turtles, sharks and ‘Lego Lost at Sea’.
The activities are free. The Aquarium is free to visit on World Oceans Day.
The usual ticket prices for the Aquarium are: Child £3, Adult £5, Family (2+2) £12, including optional Gift Aid donation.
Under-3s and Horniman Members go free every day.
