Estuarium

Aquarium in Gulf Coast

The Estuarium acts as the public education space for the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, Alabama's primary marine research facility. There are over 100 species on display; unsurprisingly, the Estuarium is a hit with the kids, although curious adults will love it too.

This aquarium uses its 10,000 sq-ft exhibition hall, 7000-gallon stingray touch pool and marsh boardwalk to highlight four key local coastal habitats: the Mobile Tensaw River Delta, Mobile Bay, Barrier Islands and the Northern Gulf of Mexico.
