By purchasing online in advance, you’ll get to skip the ticket line and lock in your entry time for easy planning.

Bring Your Coat

There is a short walk from the parking garage to the Aquarium entrance. Be sure to bring your coats so you can stay comfortable. Complimentary coat check is available.

Visit On A Weekday

Weekdays (except for holiday Mondays) are the best time to visit because that’s when you can see extra cool stuff like our biologists feeding, training and interacting with the animals in their care. Visit our calendar for more information about our daily activities.
