Thank you for your interest, ONWSC, and thanks for your help replying, aliepora22. It sounds like, based on your itinerary, you will be arriving after our business hours (closing at 5pm on Friday). We will open at 10am Saturday morning, if you are able to delay your departure to take time to visit us. A typical visit is one to 1 1/2 hours, depending on your interest in taking photos and observing the aquarium and butterfly activity. If you take a whirlwind tour, you could take a quick look at the exhibits in 30 minutes. We hope you can fit us in to your schedule!
