Events / New Jersey Aquarium - June 2005

Adventure Aquarium

I had a pleasure to photograph New Jersey Aquarium (*renamed to Aquarium Adventure) on June 18th, 2005. Although I got a private tour, we had to rush because morning "kitchen grease fire" caused delays and hundreds of people were impatiently waiting outside. I would love to go back and re-photograph entire place at a slower pace. They invested 55 million dollars and created few additional exhibits which are breath taking. Their West African River Exhibit was amazing. Two huge female hippos reside in huge tank along with huge variety of East African cichlids. I was puzzled why they called it West African Exhibit. In my honest opinion, everyone who lives in DE/PA/NJ/NY should visit this Aquarium just to see that exhibit.
