Mississippi Aquarium is a 501(c)3 Not For Profit corporation. As a not for profit corporation, we publicly disclose financial statements and reports. These reports give depth to our practice, stories and accomplishments.

Mississippi Aquarium has built its foundation on the connection of the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the roaring waters of the Mighty Mississippi River and the wetlands and marshes of our tranquil bayous.  Living in Mississippi is about the experience and the relationships.

Mississippi Aquarium represents education, conservation and community. We emphasize the ecological importance of the Gulf Coast and provide our visitors many opportunities to be entertained and fully immersed in the aquatic wonder that Mississippi has to offer.

We aim…

“To be a premier institution delivering an awe-inspiring entertainment experience which supports animal research and conservation, inspires learning and instills a passion for the aquatic world.”

We exist to…
