The aquarium will have replicas of some of the most iconic buildings in Manhattan inside the huge tank, where more than 3,000 creatures will be on display.

The aquarium unveiled its "City Under the Sea" theme back in December, which will feature 10 interactive exhibits. It will be geared to children from 3 to 10 years old. A typical visit will last around two hours.

Admission will cost $21 for children and $26 for adults. Annual passes will start around $70.
