We’re excited to share the most significant expansion of our history. Your very first step into our amazing new space will lead you to new interactive areas, conservation stories, educational programming, animal exhibits and other immersive experiences.
Your aquatic experience begins as you stroll through our welcoming outdoor courtyard overlooking Stanley Park. Through the summer, the courtyard comes alive with educational programming, children’s entertainment, concerts, and special events.
Upon entry, a giant globe of our world will greet you as wrap-around screens take you on a journey of our oceans and the aquatic life within them.
A long-time favourite, the Clownfish Cove Children’s Area connects young minds to the wonder of our oceans through a “learn by play” approach. Kids will love our new Animal Rescue Centre, seaside dock with “underwater” tunnels to explore, a touch table and a reading nook.
In the warmth of our tropical gallery, you’ll find a new pig-nosed turtle, stunning rainbowfishes, a surface-floating four-eyed fish and mudskippers. There is also a new bat cave exhibit in the Graham Amazon Gallery.
From rainwater toilets to an energy-efficient heating and cooling system, our revitalization has led with LEED Silver sustainability standards.
Our new Ocean Wise indoor and outdoor cafés provide a delicious array of food and beverage delights making it an ideal spot to take in the beauty of Stanley Park.
You’ll enjoy the extra elbow room in our new gift shop as you to browse sustainable, educational and aquatic-themed keepsakes.
Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit society dedicated to the conservation of aquatic life. Your visit directly supports our conservation, research and education programs, which help to protect our oceans and the aquatic life within them.
We look forward to welcoming you.
