NEW:  SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium announces a new Sea Turtle Rescue Center!

The new Sea Turtle Rescue Center will serve as a home to rehabilitated sea turtles that are no longer able to survive in the wild due to injury or other ailments.  A new, permanent addition to Kansas City's aquarium, the Sea Turtle Rescue Center will invite visitors of all ages to get face-to-flipper with sea turtles in an intimate aquarium setting while learning about the threats wild turtles encounter.  Visitors will experience first-hand the process of successfully rescuing and rehabilitating sea turtles in this new aquarium experience.


The attraction is located on the south side of Crown Center Square at 25th and Grand Blvd.

  • This attraction will transport you into the amazing underwater world. Come nose to nose with sharks and prepare for astonishingly close views of everything from humble starfish and seahorses to graceful rays. To get any closer, you'd have to get wet!
  • See more than 5,000 sea creatures and 30 incredible displays. Hold a crab and touch a starfish in the interactive Touchpool Experience.
  • Open daily except Christmas Day.
  • Please visit Merlin's jobs board for employment information.
