The opening date of Mississippi Aquarium in downtown Gulfport holds much significance for the state of Mississippi, as 15 years ago, Hurricane Katrina transformed our coastline. We once again transform the Coast making Mississippi stronger than ever. Mississippi Aquarium is opening our doors to the public on this monumental day, representing a revitalization of Coastal Mississippi. 

"There are so many great recovery stories, and now Mississippi Aquarium will be another great story. Our leaders and communities put the hard work into rebuilding the Coast following Hurricane Katrina and it has paid off," said Kurt Allen, President and CEO of Mississippi Aquarium. "No words can adequately express our gratitude for the support we've received from the residents of Coastal Mississippi and across the state."
