What You Need To Know


Currently we are open weekdays, 10am – 4pm and weekends 10am – 5pm with last entry an hour before we close. 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.


Coral Cove Gift Shop

Cap off your visit with a keepsake! Our on-premise Coral Cove Gift Shop operated by Wildlife Trading Company offers books, clothing, colorful plush toys and other mementos.

Hours coincide with Aquarium.
Passholders receive 10% discount on all purchases.

The Nautica Café – Temporarily Closed

Currently, there is no eating or drinking in the Aquarium. Snacks are available in the Coral Cove Gift Shop and picnic lunches can be packed for outdoor eating at available picnic tables on warm days.


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.
