Why You Should Go...

The only freestanding, independent aquarium in Ohio is located in downtown Cleveland on the West Bank of the Flats, just steps away from the Cuyahoga River.

Housed in a former powerhouse, the Aquarium reimages

Many of the Aquarium's themed galleries' exhibits offer 360-degree views. A stingray touch pool and a 230,000-gallon shark gallery with a walk-through seatube make every visit memorable.

So come admire an angelfish. Discuss a discus. Eyeball an eel. Freak out over flashlight fish. Gawk at a gourami. Look up at the lockdown fish. Marvel at moon jellies. Ogle an octopus. Peer at poison dart frogs. Stroke a stingray or stand under a sand tiger shark. You'll get an up-close look at curious creatures- but not other guests- when you visit the Greater Cleveland Aquarium.

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.
