Mississippi Aquarium will tell the incredible story of all of Mississippi's aquatic resources from the Delta to the coastline and the remarkable connection that ties all of the state's natural resources uniquely together. Featuring the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and beyond, the roaring waters of the mighty Mississippi River, and the wetlands and marshes of the tranquil bayous, the story of Mississippi's natural resources had never been told in this extraordinary way. The Aquarium understands that living in Mississippi is about the outdoor experience and the relationships of its people. Mississippi Aquarium represents education, conservation, and community. The Aquarium will provide visitors with many opportunities to be entertained and fully immersed in the aquatic wonder that Mississippi has to offer.
Mississippi Aquarium is a 501c(3) non-profit organization and local leader in coastal conservation, education, and community participation. The Aquarium operates without subsidies and every contribution supports animal care and health, education and conservation initiatives, aquatic research, and future growth.
