Desert Museum will open its new aquarium January 5

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum has just announced that it will open its new Warden Aquarium “Rivers to the sea” on January 5, 2013. The aquarium will feature and interpret aquatic life from the Colorado River and from the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California). I’m told that at certain times visitors will be able to touch some slimy sea creatures. The aquarium is located adjacent to the gift shop just inside the museum entrance.

Because visitor capacity in the aquarium is limited, visitors will be assigned a viewing time when they enter the museum on a first come, first served basis. Alternatively, for an extra $5 fee you can get a confirmed viewing time reservation.
