The entry project will place a glass roof over the historic boilers, move ticketing indoors and open up the lobby.
Entering a New Era
September 2003As the Aquarium looks forward to its 20th anniversary in 2004, construction begins on a dramatic new entrance. Ticket lines will be moved indoors, and the courtyard around the Hovden Cannery boilers will become an atrium beneath a vaulted glass roof. It will contain an interpretive exhibit about the historic site on which the Aquarium now stands. An overhead walkway will link second-floor galleries. The new entrance will open to the public in May 2004.
