Know Before You Go

We have begun an exciting transformation at the aquarium. When this work is complete, you'll be able to enjoy a whole new experience, including a thrilling exhibit, Ocean Wonders: Sharks! During this process, you'll see that portions of the park are closed.

We thank you for your support during this historic time for the New York Aquarium.
