General admission, at no charge, allows you and your family to enjoy live animal exhibits indoors and outdoors, and displays about natural history and space science. Advance registration is required for general admission at Lake Erie Nature & Science Center. 

We care about you, your family, and our employees, and we are following protocols recommended by the State of Ohio and Ohio Department of Health to help reduce the risk of spreading the virus:

  • face masks are worn by our employees and we require that all visitors over the age of 6 wear face masks.
  • face masks are strongly recommended for children ages 5 and under
  • visitors are encouraged to bring their own masks, or will be provided one to wear
  • hand sanitizing stations and hand washing facilities are available throughout the building
  • physical distances of 6 feet will be maintained at all times
  • indoor public areas will be regularly cleaned and sanitized
  • visitors are asked to self-monitor for virus symptoms prior to arrival
  • visitors are asked to stay home if they are ill, if diagnosed with COVID-19, or if residing with someone diagnosed with the virus
