The Idaho Aquarium is the only place of its kind in Idaho. It is an interactive aquarium where children and adults can touch, feed, and learn about each individual animal. Come be a part of the Idaho Aquarium family, explore the ocean with your own hands, and leave with the greatest memories!
The Idaho Aquarium is now open to the public 10am to 8pm daily. Our 10,000 square foot facility houses over 35,000 gallons of saltwater and over 250 different species of animals and marine life. Though not all of the facility is complete, there is room for a large 130,000 gallon shark tank, seals, amazon, and sea otter exhibit that are in the planning and design stage. Please visit our exhibits page for more details on the current exhibits available.
Our main goal is education, and we have set up an education program for each level of children from k-12. We strive to be an exciting and enriching place where children of all ages can experience the wonders of ocean life. In addition, we will be partnering with colleges and universities to offer an internship program for older students. Idaho Aquarium Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “educate and inspire the community to conserve oceanic life.” Together with the community, our organisation has brought new life to idaho for us all to enjoy.
