On Sunday April 3rd 2005 after 101 years of operation the City of Detroit, due to financial stresses closed the Belle Isle Aquarium.
After seven years of dedicated work by the folks at the Belle Isle Conservancy, the aquarium will reopen at 10am Saturday, September 15th. Admission is free and the Aquarium will be open every Saturday.
If your are gonna head down for the aquarium opening, don’t forget to stop by the Dossin Great Lakes Museum and the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory.
