Detroit is home to America’s oldest aquarium! The Belle Isle Aquarium on Detroit’s Belle Isle is a hidden treasure. It draws thousands of visitors every year!

Belle Isle Aquarium opened to the public in 1904. Famed architect Albert Kahn was the mastermind behind the design.

Some of the features of the building are unique to the Beaux Arts style. Check out this green opalite ceiling! Looks like you’re under the water!

Oh and of course, tons of fish!

Not just fish from Michigan, but from all over the world!

Where else (but Jurassic Park) can you go to see this Prehistoric guy?

So what are you waiting for? Go see this dude!

Best of all, admission is free!

The Belle Isle Aquarium 900 Inselruhe Ave, Belle Isle  is open Fri- Sun 10am -4pm
