Through the month of May, the Newport Aquarium celebrates 15 years in Cincinnati by offering special deals, events, extended hours, and something called World Turtle Day (!). And starting in June, you can watch Artworks Cincinnati as they create an aquatic-themed mural along the building’s exterior wall.
Here’s the big birthday month schedule:
Annual Passholders Bring-A-Friend Discount: Newport Aquarium Annual Passholders can purchase tickets for their friends and family members for $15 for adults and $10 for children. Limit one (1) discounted guest ticket per Annual Pass. Offer and tickets valid Mondays-Fridays May 1-21, 2014.
May 1, 5-8
Buy One Get One Free Penguin Encounters and Backstage Animal Experiences: On May 1 and May 5-8, guests can buy one Penguin Encounter or Backstage Animal Experience and get a second free.
World Turtle Day: American Tortoise Rescue, a nonprofit organization established in 1990 for the protection of all species of tortoise and turtle, is sponsoring its 14th annual World Turtle Day™ on May 23. The day was created as an observance to help people celebrate and protect turtles and tortoises and their disappearing habitats around the world. What better way to spend World Turtle Day in the tri-state than to visit Newport Aquarium and its newest exhibit, Turtle Canyon.
