Long Island Aquarium and Exhibition Center Is Ready for Visitors

Because the aquarium is only 11 years old, “we’ve had the advantage of building all our exhibitions with interactive elements,” Mr. DeLuca said. “You can dive with sharks here, snorkel with tropical fish. At almost all the older aquariums, everything is behind the glass.”

Nevertheless, he acknowledges that “up to now, we’ve really been a day trip.”

Mr. DeLuca expects that to change, though, starting this month, with the name switch and the addition, within steps, of the Long Island Exhibition Center
