An Economic Engine for Tampa Bay


 Widely considered one of the best venues in Tampa, the new event center and exhibit space will enable the Aquarium to:

  • Host large, world class events and exhibits to bring fresh offerings to the public
  • Significantly increase revenues with a large venue and gallery space to support our conservation, education and animal rescue programs
  • Add training and dive facilities to bring more of the underwater world to the public
