Temporary Facility Update

We are currently open in our Temporary Facility at the south end of the parking lot!  We have our same operating hours (M-F 2pm-8pm, S-S 9am-8pm).

Please note the south side parking lot is closed to house the pier construction equipment.  Don’t mind the fence, we’re still open! Please park in another lot so you don’t get a ticket.


The New and Improved
Roundhouse Aquarium Teaching Center

We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Harrison Greenberg Foundation and the City of Manhattan Beach to create a state of the art educational aquarium.  The funding for the Harrison Greenberg Foundation Roundhouse Aquarium Beautification Project will be used to completely transform the interior of the Roundhouse.  The footprint of the Roundhouse will remain the same, but the inside will be all new.  When you enter the new Roundhouse Aquarium Teaching Center, a fully immersive experience awaits you.  In addition to a more beautiful looking aquarium inside, the Roundhouse will be more efficient and functional.  The changes will improve the experience for our visitors, volunteers, and students alike.

Construction is scheduled to begin in January of 2018 and run through the end of Summer 2018.  It will run concurrently with the city’s pier improvement projects.
