Rio Tinto Kennecott Plaza
We are excited to welcome you for a sneak peek of the new Rio Tinto Kennecott Plaza, opening Thursday, July 2, 2020! All guests will now begin their experience in our new Welcome Center located in front of the plaza.
The Plaza includes EECO (Ecosystem Exploration Craft & Observatory), community gathering space, peaceful gardens, and an amphitheater. Guests can explore their connection to the Living Planet through interactive learning experiences.
As an artistic sculpture, EECO inspires curiosity and wonder. The overall educational themes throughout the plaza focus on the concepts of curiosity, connections, and choices. The Plaza will be used for community events such as festivals, farmers’ markets, outdoor events, and more!
Our new Welcome Center is where guests will purchase tickets or scan their memberships to enter the Aquarium as well as the new Plaza. Our Guest Services team can assist you with whatever your may need, from renewing a membership, to purchasing gift cards, or setting up an Animal Encounter. Let us know how we can help!
