Greater Cleveland Aquarium | 2000 Sycamore St. Cleveland, OH, 44113
$ ($0 - $25)
We get it: the kinds of places you’d go as part of a school field trip aren’t necessarily the first destinations you seek out when visiting a new city. But the Greater Cleveland Aquarium is different.
If you’ve never seen sharks being fed, jellyfish glowing like lava lamps or Lake Erie perch not dredged in batter and sitting on a pile of french fries, you need to come see the nearly 5,000 species of fresh and saltwater creatures swimming throughout this converted 19th-century power plant.
Passionate aquarium employees mingle with guests, sharing interesting facts, leading hands-on demonstrations and answering your most important questions like, “Ew, what is that thing?!”
The aquarium is located inside The Powerhouse, a brick landmark that once generated electric power for Cleveland’s streetcar lines and remains a lasting visual tribute to Cleveland’s industrial past.
Peer at poison dart frogs. Wonder over weedy seadragons. Meditate with moon jellies. Stroke stingrays and stand under sharks. Nature. It’s a curious thing.
