The Living Planet Aquarium

Recently we had the opportunity to visit The Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy.
Have you been yet? If not you should schedule an excursion soon.

The Living Planet Aquarium is fun for all ages. Little ones will enjoy all the hands on fun, especially petting a sting ray or story time which takes place weekdays at noon. Big kids and adults will love it all.

There are 1250 animals and 267 species on display in the three main exhibits at The Living Planet Aquarium.

Discover Utah is host to many of Utah's endangered species. Kids will love the simulated boat ride across the Great Salt Lake.
Journey to South America  here you will see animals from the rain forests of South America like an Anaconda or Piranha and electric eels. You can also find the penguins here.
Ocean Explorer features ocean life from all over the world. You will get the chance to see jellyfish, octopus, sea turtles, stingrays and sharks. 

The Living Planet Aquarium  is open Sunday to Thursday 10:00 am - 7:00 pm and
Friday and Saturday 10:00 am - 8:00 pm
