Aquarium Transformation in Progress
The Aquarium is open and in the midst of a renovation that will renew its main building to the core. Many of our largest animals have taken over the penguin exhibit while the Giant Ocean Tank is under construction.
But don’t worry—the little blue penguins are safe and sound in a temporary exhibit with even closer viewing access. Around the corner, the New Balance Foundation Marine Mammal Center is supercharged with fur seals and sea lions at play, and cownose rays are gliding within your reach at The Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank.
There are more than 800 different marine animal species on exhibit during construction. Don’t miss your chance to see the Aquarium being transformed before your eyes.

You also won't want to miss the new Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank which features sharks and rays in a 25,000-gallon tank surrounded by shallow edges and viewing windows, allowing visitors to experience a close encounter with these animals.
