Seattle, WA. If you’re taking a road trip up north, you might want to know that The Seattle Aquarium reopened a month ago with timed ticketing and limited attendance; this means those who make the journey will get up close to the animals and not other visitors. Seattle Aquarium staffers have worked closely with local health experts to provide a safe and fun experience.
There are some changes you need to know about before visiting:
- ONLINE TICKETS MUST BE RESERVED IN ADVANCE for all guests, whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long-time member.
- YOUR TIMED TICKET indicates your arrival window. There is no limit to how long you can spend at the Aquarium.
- FACE COVERINGS/MASKS ARE REQUIRED during your visit. Exemptions to this order include babies/toddlers under age 2; anyone with a disability that makes it hard for them to wear or remove a face covering; anyone who is deaf and moves their face and mouth to communicate; and anyone who has been advised by a medical professional to not wear a face-covering because of personal health issues.
- A ONE-WAY PATHWAY with clear physical distance markers will guide you through the Aquarium and help protect everyone’s health.
