New Entry and Skywalk Open
May 2004Our new entry lobby and skywalk opens on Memorial Day weekend to the delight of our holiday visitors. Major enhancements include a glass-roofed atrium over the historic cannery boilers at the Aquarium entrance, a skywalk connecting the original Aquarium galleries with those in the Outer Bay wing, and an indoor ticketing center. The project incorporates the latest in "green" building standards, from construction materials to building operations.
