Discovery Center

discoveryforwebNew and innovative changes are being planned and implemented to engage more people in learning about the Great Lakes and freshwater resources.  Those exciting plans include the Discovery Center, a bright, spacious education center with three new classrooms, a teacher resource center and a distance-learning studio.discoveryclassroomslarge

The Discovery Center will double our current classroom space, allowing Great Lakes Aquarium to grow its popular educational programming.

Great Lakes Aquarium has received $125,000 in gifts and challenge grants from the Minnesota Power Foundation to make this vision a reality.  The Aquarium has met its $50,000 challenge for 2013 and is well on its way to meeting the 2014 challenge.  Construction will begin in 2014.
