THE STORY:

 Crown the Jewel- We need a new roof!

The Belle Isle Aquarium was designed by famed architect Albert Kahn.  It opened in 1904 and remains one of Detroit's architectural icons.  It closed in 2005 and reopened in 2012 with volunteers and a small aquarist staff.  Attendance some weekends has topped 6,000 visitors!  While a major restoration will cost millions, we’ve breathed life into tank exhibits (electric eels and stingrays are back!), restored skylights and glass ceiling tiles and established a field trip program for Detroit Public Schools fourth graders.  The copper roof is not original and needs repair.  Leaks threaten the building and our recent interior renovations.     

We need your help to put a crown back on our jewel of an Aquarium.

Goal: $40,000 to stabilize the copper roof to seal out moisture.

If we reach our goal, the Aquarium will recognize The Detroit Homecoming Alumni with a listing on the donor wall!
