Mermaids are REAL and you can see them right now at the Virginia Aquarium! Every Monday in the month of April, mermaids from across the Virginia coast will be featured in the red sea aquarium as they allow humans, like you and me, see them they swim and play with their underwater friends. Enjoy story time, a mermaid puppet show and take home unique souvenirs.
