We are closed to the public temporarily

Hello and thank you for visiting the Seattle Aquarium website.

In accordance with guidance from the State of Washington, King County and the City of Seattle, the Aquarium is temporarily closed to the public and all programming has been cancelled as a preventative measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19 through our community. There has been no evidence that any Aquarium employee, volunteer or visitor has or had the virus.

We’re disappointed that we can’t welcome you to the Aquarium during this time, and we’re committed to furthering our mission of Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment throughout the closure. One way we’re doing that is by ensuring the animals in our care continue to be healthy, are doing well and are receiving exceptional care from our dedicated staff. We’re also committed to trying to minimize the impact on our employees during the closure. As a nonprofit these are not easy decisions, and we’ve been carefully considering our options and maximizing strategies to support our dedicated staff.

Until we can welcome you back, we invite you to visit our “experience the Aquarium from anywhere” page to discover activities for all ages, animal facts, trivia questions and more. You can also see what the marine mammals are up to through our live cams, or view videos of your favorite exhibits. Plus, throughout the closure we’ll be highlighting different animals each week with story times, diver shows, Q&As with our animal care staff, blog posts and more. Remember to engage with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as well—we’ll be featuring even more great content there.

If you previously purchased tickets to visit the Aquarium, we will provide refunds/honor them at later dates. For refunds please email tickets@seattleaquarium.org or call (206) 693-6234.

We appreciate your patience and understanding, and look forward to seeing you at the Aquarium soon.
