The Via Aquarium is a family favorite, where sharks will swim right over your head in the shark tunnel and you can feel the skin of a live stingray at Stingray Bay.  For indoor fun, visit Via Entertainment to compete head-to-head in the arcade and bowling alley. The Empire State Aerosciences Museum offers a unique and educational stop for kids to learn about aviation history and check out some amazing old planes up close.
