The Belle Isle Aquarium is a public aquarium located in Belle Isle Park in Detroit, Michigan. Designed by noted architects George D. Mason and Albert Kahn, it opened on August 18, 1904, and was the oldest continually operating public aquarium in North America when it closed on April 3, 2005. The aquarium reopened to the public on August 18, 2012, and is now run entirely by volunteers. The 10,000-square-foot (930 m2) historic building features a single large gallery with an arched ceiling covered in green glass tile to evoke an underwater feeling.The aquarium was operated by the Detroit Zoological Society prior to the 2005 closure. It is currently operated by the Belle Isle Conservancy.

English Belle Isle Aquarium

Before the 105-year-old Belle Isle Aquarium closed in 2005, it was the oldest operating aquarium in the United States. Designed by Albert Kahn, the building itself is good-looking. The basement of the aquarium served as a speakeasy during Prohibition. Efforts to reopen the aquarium were successful in 2012 and the aquarium is now run by volunteers.

Italian Acquario di Belle Isle

Prima della chiusura, nel 2005, l'acquario di Belle Isle era il più antico acquario in funzione negli Stati Uniti. Progettato da Albert Kahn, l'edificio stesso è di bell'aspetto. Il seminterrato dell'acquario fungeva da speakeasy durante il proibizionismo. Gli sforzi per riaprire l'acquario hanno avuto successo nel 2012 e l'acquario è ora gestito da volontari.
