Belle Isle Aquarium open for Shiver On The River!

The Friends of Belle Isle Aquarium posted on their Facebook page today that the Aquarium will be open to the public for the annual Shiver On The River event on February 6th from 10-3! My chance to see the inside is here...and yours too. Neptune is pleased.
Old and newer photos of the inside:
The entrance to the Aquarium:
The medallion above the door contains the city's motto, said to be spoken by Father Gabriel Richard after Detroit burned to the ground in 1805:
Speramus Meliora, Resurget  Cineribus
We hope for better things, it shall arise from the ashes
Are you coming to pay your respects to Neptune? Leave me a note and I'll look for you there.
