Renovations are underway and will be completed by May 2020. The Scott Aquarium will remain open as these are taking place. Once complete, the Scott Aquarium will have a redesigned facade. Brushed stainless steel will simulate waves in the ocean and cut metal panels will replicate coral. Lighting and sound will make the area come alive with realistic efforts. The entrances to the Scott Aquarium and the Aquarium Conference Center will both be better defined and include a four foot by 12 foot videoboard. Sea Turtle Cafe and the plaza area of the exhibit will also be updated, as well as the restrooms and carpeting.
Walk on the bottom of the ocean and come nose to nose with sea turtles as sharks circle above you in the 70 foot shark tunnel. Discover polar regions, temperate oceans, coral reefs and the Amazon exploring the largest aquarium in a zoo, the Suzanne and Walter Scott Aquarium. From Antarctic penguins to colorful warm water fish, you will observe the magical world of underwater life.
