During the planned demolition of our neighboring Pier 58 (Waterfront Park), directly south of the Aquarium, a portion of that pier’s structure collapsed. None of the Aquarium’s staff or animals were harmed in the collapse and city officials are on site monitoring the situation.
The structural integrity of the Aquarium remains intact. The Aquarium sits on newer, largely concrete pilings that provide a strong and sturdy foundation, different than the wood pilings supporting Pier 58 (Waterfront Park).
We are monitoring the situation closely to determine next steps and will post updates across our website and social channels as needed.
