Get a closer look at marine life at Galway Atlantaquaria, where interactive exhibits allow visitors to touch the tank's occupants. Walk under the bones of the giant fin whale and visit the strange bottom feeders in their tanks. The viewing window for the ocean tank glows blue and teems with life, and the ray pool allows you to slide your fingers across the creature's slick back. The aquarium is near the beach and makes a nice stopping point on a city tour. Simply purchase your tickets when you arrive.
