Why You Should Go...

The only freestanding, independent aquarium in Ohio is located in downtown Cleveland, just steps away from the Cuyahoga River. Housed in a former powerhouse, the Aquarium creatively reimagines the historic brick building, with tropical reefs taking the place of former coal chutes and moon jellyfish filling what once was a smokestack.

Immersive, sensory-rich galleries allow guests to travel from freshwater rivers to saltwater oceans in about 90 minutes. Many of the Aquarium's more than 50 exhibits offer up-close, 360-degree views and its 230,000-gallon shark gallery even has a walk-through seatube so you can watch a sand tiger shark glide slowly overhead.

Stingray and invertebrate touch pools, exhibit feedings, animal encounters and underwater SCUBA diver Q&As make every visit memorable. Guest Experience Associates stationed throughout the Aquarium are available to answer all your aquatic animal questions.

Close is at 5 pm, with the last tickets sold at 4 pm.

Insider Info

Parking is $3-6 (cash only) but there are usually free spots on the street outside the lot. 

Exhibit feedings, SCUBA diver talks and animal encounters occur daily, but birthday parties, shark divers, stingray art and other one-of-a-kind experiences are also available with advance booking. 

For the animals' comfort and safety, there's no flash photography. But you can take all the flash-free pics and seatube selfies you want.

Fun Facts

The first time the Aquarium filled its 230,000-gallon shark exhibit, it took 12 hours. That's a lot of water! 

The Aquarium is located in the historic FirstEnergy Powerhouse. It was built in 1892 as a coal-burning furnace to generate electricity for streetcars. 

The spotted turtle is a threatened species in Northeast Ohio. Through its nonprofit Splash Fund, the Aquarium is working with partners across the region to help boost its numbers in the wild.
