Please note: The Aquarium is open and in the midst of a transformation that will renew the building to its core. The African and rockhopper penguins are off-site during the construction. The little blue penguins are in a temporary exhibit with even closer viewing access. Other exhibits highlighted in the video will be affected during the course of the renovation.
