  1. Is the Aquarium handicap accessible? I have a child in a wheelchair as well as a younger daughter and this maybe something I’d be interested in doing with my girls
    Thanks in advance,
    Dorothy

    • Hi Dorothy! Yes, Newport Aquarium is handicap accessible. We have multiple elevators located throughout the building, as well as ramps and/or wheelchair areas for each of our exhibits.
