Century old Belle Isle Aquarium to reopen

Originally opened in 1904, the Belle Isle Aquarium is set to reopen its doors this weekend. Before it closed in 2005, the Belle Isle Aquarium was the longest continuously operated public fresh water aquarium in North America. What is also amazing is that it is the only volunteer run public aquarium in the country. If you live in the Detroit area, make sure to stop by and visit. The aquarium is only open on certain days of the week. Admission is free. Make sure to visit the Belle Island Conservancy website for dates and times.
