See & Do
Housed in what was once a powerhouse on the Flats West Bank along the Cuyahoga River, the historic brick building’s 7 re-imagined galleries afford up-close, eye-level and 360-degree views of more than 300 species. With 2500 freshwater and saltwater animals from our own Lake Erie and across the globe, there are plenty of opportunities for serendipitous discovery. Check out a little of what you can expect to see here.
While we encourage a seatube selfie, a visit to the Aquarium is a chance to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with family, friends and nature. You can watch a shark feed or gently touch a rescue turtle during our daily feeds and encounters. You can shadow an aquarist or dive with the sharks as part of a pre-scheduled interactive experience. And, a rotating calendar of special programs includes holiday-themed family days, a month-long celebration of sharks and other programs. Click here to learn more about what you can do.
