For Immediate Release: September 14, 2020  

GULFPORT, Miss. –  The animals, staff and guests are our top priority. Due to the threat of Hurricane Sally, Mississippi Aquarium will be closed on Monday, September 14 through Wednesday, September 16. We plan on re-opening to the public on Thursday, September 17 at 10:00 AM.

We have begun to secure all habitats for the animals that will remain on campus and move some animals to our secure off-site location. Our ride-out team has been diligent in their plans for the storm and are well prepared for any outages that may arise.

We are monitoring the weather reports closely and will keep our guests and members updated regularly on our website and social channels.

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to seeing you again soon after the threat of inclement weather passes.
