Event Navigation

Through Sunday, April 11
Fridays – Sundays, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. (last ticket sold at 5 p.m.)
Mondays – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. (last ticket sold at 4 p.m.)

Have you seen the suction cups on a poison dart frog’s toes?  Ever watched a garden eel stretch to snatch passing prey? When did you last count the suckers on an octopus’s arm or a sandtiger shark’s teeth? The beauty is in the details, so don’t let aquatic life pass you by. Get a closer look at these amazing animals during Greater Cleveland Aquarium’s Spring Discovery Days.

Beginning March 19 and running through April 11, the Aquarium will be open Mondays – Thursdays from 10am – 5pm and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 6pm. Spring Discovery Days’ guests are encouraged to try a new “I Spy” challenge, learn a little tiny animal trivia or try their hand at shark tooth identification. The Aquarium was built inside a historic powerhouse so designers had to get creative and many of its exhibits start at the floor, jut out from thick, brick walls or are entirely freestanding with 360-degree views, “In nature, the beauty is often in the details, and you can gain a good appreciation for the design of an octopus when it’s crossing a clear arch directly over your head,” says GM Stephanie White.
