What You Need To Know
We typically are open 363 days a year from 10am-5pm. However, following COVID-19 closure, we’ve switched to timed tickets and limited our hours. We’re currently open 12pm-4pm with pre-reserved, timed entry for Passholders. Starting Monday, July 6 we will be open 10am-4pm to the general public with pre-purchased, timed entry. This could change as we move ahead as we determine what works for guests and for our team. We appreciate your patience.
In addition to street spots, there is a cash-only parking lot in front of the Aquarium. In order to provide a contactless visit, there is no parking attendant at this time. We fully expect that to change.
Parking is always FREE during visits for Greater Cleveland Aquarium Annual Passholders.
We are located in the historic FirstEnergy Powerhouse on the West Bank of the Flats, just a short walk from Shooters on the Water, the Nautica Queen, Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica and much more. For additional assistance with directions, please call 216.862.8803.
The Nautica Café – Temporarily Closed
Conveniently located directly above the Aquarium, the Nautica Café offers family-friendly fare such as personal pan pizzas, hotdogs, deli sandwiches and more.
The Greater Cleveland Aquarium is completely wheelchair accessible. Strollers are permitted.
Typically we lend wheelchairs for use on a first-come, first-served basis. Unfortunately, we are not offering them right now due to sanitation concerns.
