For the safety of our guests, The Splash Pad, our outdoor children's play area, is closed through spring 2017 as we complete construction of the Mosaic Center and enhancements to our outdoor plaza area. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Party Venues in Tampa FL

The Florida Aquarium has perfectly unique party venues in Tampa that will make your event a night to remember.

Our modern facility features beautiful exhibits which feature animals native to Florida and beyond to enhance your event.

In addition, our facility features two large lobbies which are tiled for dancing. Private event locations within the exhibits can be used creatively, such as having a jazz lounge in front of our 500,000 gallon floor-to-ceiling Coral Reef tank, or a dessert room in front of our Bait Ball exhibit. The modern architecture and layout of our private event locations allow for flexibility and creativity for themed events that add a special individual touch to your event.
