The Mississippi Aquarium tells the incredible story of Mississippi's aquatic resources from the Delta to the coastline and the remarkable connection that ties all of the state's natural resources 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 has 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 and provides visitors opportunities to be entertained and fully immersed in the aquatic wonder that Mississippi has to offer.
