The Vancouver Aquarium Expands

Water world.

The Vancouver Aquarium will reveal part of the most significant expansion in its 58-year history this Friday—a sustainably designed state-of-the-art space, and the first of three notable additions to the marine centre. Following the $45-million phase one makeover, the recently added 55,000-square-foot facility is bustling with new interactive areas, animal exhibits, and other aquatic experiences. Highlights include a re-designed indoor and outdoor entry complex; the Teck Connections Gallery, which welcomes guests with an expansive 360-degree overhead projection of ocean bodies; and a 120-seat theatre for educational programs and lectures. After taking an extensive stroll through one of the city’s top attractions, refuel in the new bi-level café and enjoy 100 per cent sustainable Ocean Wise dishes. The new and improved Aquarium will open June 13.
