LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — As places start to reopen, people are excited to get out and dive into in-person experiences. A new study found one of the safest indoor activities to do during the pandemic is visit a museum or aquarium.

WFXR News’ Hazelmarie Anderson and Aaron Farrar visited SeaQuest in Lynchburg on Wednesday, May 12 to check out the fun, family-friendly exhibits and activities.

SeaQuest is an interactive aquarium dedicated to connecting the Lynchburg community with sea creatures and other animals from all over the world.

While visiting SeaQuest, Hazelmarie and Aaron got to feed stingrays, visit “Flash” the sloth, and play with Savannah cats “Versace” and “Luna.”

The aquarium — which is located at 3405 Candlers Mountain Road — is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
