Feel that chill in the air? That’s our cue to head inside. Luckily, the fun doesn’t have to end with these indoor activities. 

Adventure Aquarium 


Visit with the only Nile hippos living at an aquarium, Button and Genny, but don’t stop there. Spend the day watching and learning about the over 15,000 creatures who call Adventure Aquarium home – sharks, penguins, starfish, turtles and more. Plus, stop by the KidZone for some hands-on activities geared towards younger visitors or Piranha Falls for a multi-sensory experience that mimics the Amazon Rainforest. 

Ric and Jean Edelman Planetarium 


Get out of this world with some sick beats and mind-blowing lasers during the public shows at Ric and Jean Edelman Planetarium. Check the website for each season’s schedules. Right now, the planetarium is running “Let It Snow” and “Laser Holiday Magic” on Fridays and Saturdays, “Winter Stargazing” on Saturdays and “Laser Taylor Swift” on Saturdays and Sundays. Plus, every Sunday there’s a family show starting at 2 pm. 

In My Grandmother’s Kitchen 


The family that cooks together, has fun together. At least they do at In My Grandmother’s Kitchen. Start with Pasta 101, then you can move on to classes based on specific dishes like lasagna or gnocchi. All classes are family-friendly, and a full schedule and pricing are available on the website. 10% of all proceeds support community food justice initiatives.

Millville Army Air Field Museum 


This former airport in Millville will introduce you to the high-flying world of aviation and its history. 

Explore exhibits including The Navajo Code Talkers, Women with Wings and The Tuskegee Airmen featuring artifacts like replicas of warplanes and vintage uniforms. Tours are available by reservation on Mondays, and the museum is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. 

Battleship New Jersey


Ever wonder what life was like aboard the largest U.S. battleship ever built? You can find out when you board the Battleship New Jersey at the Camden Waterfront. Venture below deck for a tour of the former crews’ quarters, the room where the ship was steered, the mess and more. You can even go through the motions that the crew did when they fired a missile. The ship is open to the public every day (except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day) from 10 am to 5:30 pm, with a guided tour available at noon.
