Seattle Aquarium Temporarily Closed

In accordance with the new restrictions set forth by Governor Inslee yesterday reflecting the recent and rapid spread of COVID-19 throughout the state and across the country, the Aquarium will temporarily close effective tomorrow, November 17.

The Aquarium will continue prioritizing the health and safety of our staff, as well as the animals in our care throughout this closure, and look forward to welcoming visitors back through our doors as soon as it’s deemed safe to do so.

For those who will miss visiting the Aquarium in person, visit our web site for access to live animal web cams, and links to videos and other ways to stay connected virtually.
