Birch Aquarium is Temporarily Closed

If you are a member who has reserved a time to visit, and we are not open by the date of your scheduled visit, your reservation will be automatically cancelled. No action is required from you at this time, please visit our website to reschedule once we have announced a reopening date. 

If you have purchased timed tickets and the aquarium is not open by the date of your scheduled visit, you may reschedule your visit for a future date once we know our reopening date; you may donate your ticket purchase to support the aquarium during this time of need; or contact Visitor Services for other options.
