Save The Bay’s Exploration Center and Aquarium reopens July 5, 2021

Sharks, skates and jellies await! If you’re ready to explore the world beneath the waves of Narragansett Bay, then Save The Bay invites you to plan a trip to the Exploration Center and Aquarium this July!

Reopening Monday, July 5, this interactive marine science center is home to more than 40 species from Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island waters. Our three touch tanks—including our brand new shark and skate touch tank*—allow visitors to engage in hands-on learning, while exhibits and activity stations introduce guests to seahorses, turtles, urchins and more!

Beginning July 5, the Exploration Center and Aquarium will be open Wednesday-Monday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Standard admission is $9 per person, with discounts available for seniors and college students. Admission is free for Save The Bay Family Members, children under three years of age, and for active military and first responders with ID.

Please note: At this time, masks are required while visiting the center. The facility currently has a 20-person capacity limit. If we are at capacity when you arrive, you will be welcomed into the center as soon as the numbers allow!

The Exploration Center and Aquarium is located on the first floor of the Easton’s Beach Rotunda at 175 Memorial Blvd., Newport, R.I. For more information, call 401-324-6020 or visit www.savebay.org/aquarium.

*The “Sharks and Skates of Narragansett Bay” exhibit is part of a larger Shark and Skate Conservation Education Initiative made possible in part by the Institute for Museum and Library Services and the Alletta Morris McBean Charitable Trust.
