Another reason Kansas City Missouri is such great family-friendly destination is the SeaLife Aquarium at Crown Center, the home of Hallmark Cards.
Among the 30 exhibits is one of those wonderful plexiglass tunnels that you walk through and see the fish swimming all around. Stingrays are among the creatures that swim over head, along with zebra sharks and other marine life.
Touch a Starfish at SeaLife Aquarium
You don’t get to touch stingrays at this aquarium, but you can hold a crab and touch a starfish. You see and learn about everything from jelly fish to octopus to seahorses. Did you know that jellies have no heart, blood or brain?
I prefer to learn about wildlife in their natural environment, but that’s not always possible for everyone.
A visit to places like Kansas City’s SeaLife Aquarium is a wonderful reminder of the many creatures with which we share this beautiful world.
