“the only free-standing aquarium in Ohio”
The Greater Cleveland Aquarium is the only free-standing aquarium in Ohio. The aquarium offers a journey through the historic FirstEnergy Powerhouse loaded with things to do and engaging experiences. The Ohio Lakes and Rivers exhibit fascinates visitors with freshwater species that are native to Ohio, alligators, catfish and thousands of freshwater wonders. The shark tank delights guests with sharks, eels, seahorses and a wide variety of saltwater wonders, and often scuba divers who interact with guests. Plan approximately an hour and a half for your aquarium visit. The Greater Cleveland Aquarium has one very important mission: we energize curiosity by passionately educating guests about aquatic life and conservation. We offer engaging and exciting guest experiences in a family-friendly setting; our mission is brought to life with captivating exhibits rich with aquatic biodiversity, with friendly personalities, familiar faces and a nationally recognized historical foundation.
I would definitely say this place is great for parents to bring their kids, however, it's more geared towards the kids only, so couples looking to go for themselvers might be disappointed. The place is rather small, but the staff were friendly, the shark tank was fantastic, and they have simple show schedules for events that were easy to follow and cool to see. Worth a visit ESPECIALLY if you have children.
The Greater Cleveland Aquarium is a very interesting place to visit. The aquatic creatures that you will see are only the tip of the iceberg. The aquarium is located in the old FirstEnergy Powerhouse and has a lot of interesting features that you will see. The shark tube and touch tank are some of the best things to see. There are also great events held at the aquarium periodically.
Cleveland Aquarium: It is on the smaller side but so well done. The architecture is beautiful and adds a really uniue element to the experience. The shark wall is the BEST I have seen. It’s so cool and there is plenty to look at and experience. It was probably our favorite aquarium we have visited so far. ☺️
A wonderful place to take families with all ages. The Shark Tube, and touch tank were highlights. It was smaller than expected but was quite charming being in the old building.
The Cleveland Aquarium is a fun place! Lots of photo opportunities & normally some kind of activity or event going on.
