Upcoming Membership Changes

In 2023, our aquarium will be moving to a bigger, improved space at the Gateway Center in Downtown Newport. While an exact date has yet to be announced, we anticipate opening in summer 2023. In addition to upcoming closures at our current Easton’s Beach location, we will also be making related changes to our membership structure and benefits. Beginning on our new location’s opening date, Family Membership holders will receive a 50 percent discount at the new aquarium in downtown Newport. We will also begin offering a brand new Seahorse Membership, which will grant holders free admission to the location. More details coming soon!
