The Oregon Coast Aquarium's indoor exhibits will reopen to visitors on Monday. The popular Newport attraction was closed for five months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It recently opened its outdoor exhibits to the public.

There will still be some areas closed to visitors, including the play area and café. Aquarium workers remodeled a new Indo-Pacific Coral Reef Exhibit which will be open starting Monday.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium will be limiting attendance, all tickets must be purchased online, and social distancing and face coverings are required.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium opened its outdoor areas, including the sea otter exhibit, to the public two weeks ago after a 5 month closure due to the pandemic.
