Monterey Bay Aquarium is so excited to reopen and to welcome back visitors. . . unfortunately, that day won't come as soon as we had hoped. A new public health order effective July 8, 2020 requires indoor museums and zoos in Monterey County — including the Aquarium — to close for a minimum of three weeks. This means the Aquarium will not be reopening on July 13 and will not reopen until it is deemed safe by our county and state officials. Unfortunately, we have no further details we can share at this time.
We know you might be disappointed, and we are, too. But the safety of guests, staff, volunteers and animals remains our highest priority. We hope to sea you soon!
While we are closed to the public, we are still providing the highest level of care for our animals and living exhibits — and we need your help. Please make a donation or become a member today to sustain all that you love about the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
