CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Newport Aquarium opened a new exhibit - the Jim Henson’s Splash and Bubbles Reeftown Adventure - and announced for their 20th anniversary families can get one free child admission with each full-price adult ticket.

“As we start our 20th Anniversary year, it’s inspiring to think about the millions of visitors who have built special connections at Newport Aquarium.” Newport Aquarium’s Executive Director Eric Rose, said in a news release. “This new experience gives us even more opportunities to help parents teach their little ones that it’s fun to learn about animals and important to protect our oceans.”
