Vancouver Aquarium


Following a $45 million expansion, the Vancouver Aquarium has opened its doors with an additional 55,000 square feet of space. The expansion is the largest in the aquarium's history since first opening in 1956. While the aquarium is mostly devoted to marine life, one of the new exhibits features schools of cichlids from Lake Malawi. Other additions include the Fly River exhibit featuring animals from New Guinea and a Red Sea coral reef exhibit. If you live in the Vancouver area or plan to visit in the future, take a day to enjoy the new and improved facilities.
