The Belle Isle Aquarium, the oldest aquarium in the country, will be reopening to the public on July 16.
The closure of the aquarium in March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic presented an opportunity to significantly renovate the facility. Over the last 16 months, the Belle Isle Conservancy has invested $1.2M in improvements to the aquarium. The improvements include enhancing the quality of the visitor experience, upgrading exhibits, stabilizing critical life support systems, and modernizing behind the scenes infrastructure.
