There is nothing like seeing life under the sea while you are on vacation so if you are in Kansas you need to make plans to visit the Central Mall Aquarium. The aquarium is quite unique and the exhibits are incredible. For example, you could visit the Kansas Fishes Exhibit where you can see a large free standing tank that has lots of different fish in a natural setting. It looks just like a real Kansas water habitat, which makes it even more interesting to visit.
You will learn so much at the Central Mall Aquarium and be exposed to so many different species. It is quite amazing to see all the different native fishes and there are as many as 100 different native fishes! Some of these include wipers, which are hybrids for white and striped bass, channel catfish, bluegill, walleye, largemouth bass, crappie, and more. You will also see spotted gar, snapping turtles, albino catfish, and more.
This is the perfect outing for families of any size because there is something for everyone. All the kids will love the aquarium no matter how young or how old. Parents will love the aquarium, too, and it helps that it is located inside a mall so there are other stores and shopping opportunities nearby. The children’s play area as well as the food court are adjacent to the aquarium making it really convenient to eat lunch or let little kids play. The Central Mall Aquarium is a “must visit” place when you visit Salinas, Kansas. The hours follow those of the mall so make sure you check for any changes for holidays and the like if you are planning a visit.
