Lackawanna County has entered the Green Phase of PA's reopening plan. We recommend that you call ahead to your destination before traveling to ensure nothing has changed. Mask-wearing is required in Pennsylvania.
Lackawanna County's newest attraction is the wonderful Electric City Aquarium & Reptile Den. Dedicated to education and conservation, their 20,000 square foot facility has been carefully planned to accommodate each member of their animal, reptile, and fish family. If you think high definitely is awesome, you'll be astounded as you see the vibrant colors of the various species of fish swimming in crystal blue waters. Wind your way through the Frog Swamp and the Snake Den. Visit the Lizard Lair before braving Gator Alley. Leave the reptiles behind and continue your adventure in the Shark Reef. Get your hands wet in the touch tanks and pet some stingrays in Ray Bay.
Completely immerse yourself in Catfish Cove, where you will find yourself surrounded by fish on all sides. There are so many incredible creatures and interactive displays, your kids will have an educational experience they'll never forget.
Student groups are welcome to participate in the Aquarium's Animal Ambassador Education Sessions where expert keepers bring the animals out to meet their guests, watch live feedings, and learn more about topography and biomes with the interactive Topography Table.
Looking for a unique venue to host your next event? Your guests can dine with sharks, feed the sting rays, and watch the electric eel light up the night at the Electric City Aquarium & Reptile Den.
