Insider Info

The Aquarium is open daily with limited capacity and advance tickets. Guests must secure at timed entry by visiting the "Plan Your Visit" tab on the website or by calling 216.862.8803.

With 3,000 animals representing more than 300 species, the Aquarium features both Northeast Ohio freshwater animals and saltwater fish from around the globe.

For the animals' comfort and safety, no flash photography is allowed. Flash-free pictures and selfies are more than welcome.

Fun Facts

Did you know pockets of bacteria give flashlight fish their glow? That male seahorses give birth? Or that a poison dart frog’s diet is what makes it toxic?

The first time the Aquarium filled its 230,000-gallon shark exhibit, it took 12 hours.

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.
