The Seattle Aquarium is reopening with timed ticketing and limited attendance on February 9, which means you’ll get up close to the animals and not other visitors. We've worked closely with local health experts to provide a safe and fun experience. We can’t wait to see you!
Our health district (composed of King, Pierce and Snohomish counties) is currently in Phase 2 of Governor Inslee’s Healthy Washington reopening plan. To be able to reopen in this phase and protect the health of our animals, guests, staff and volunteers, we’ve made some changes you need to know about before visiting:
- ONLINE TICKETS MUST BE RESERVED IN ADVANCE for all guests, whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long-time member.
- YOUR TIMED TICKET indicates your arrival window. There is no limit to how long you can spend at the Aquarium.
- MASKS/FACE COVERINGS ARE REQUIRED during your visit. Exemptions to this order include babies/toddlers under age 5 (masks/face coverings are highly recommended for children ages 3–4). A clear mask/face covering will be provided at no charge to anyone who would like one. If you are unable to wear a mask/face covering the Aquarium will work to arrange a visit at a later date when mask requirements have been lifted. If you don’t have a mask/face covering when you arrive, one will be provided for you.
- A ONE-WAY PATHWAY with clear physical distance markers will guide you through the Aquarium and help protect everyone’s health—but you’ll still find plenty to see, experience and enjoy!
