About Ak Sar Ben Outdoor Aquarium

This Game and Parks Commission complex is the only facility of its type in the Great Plains. Many organizations and individuals worked long and hard to bring it into reality. Its 12,000 square feet include the aquarium, terrarium, natural history classroom, World Herald Auditorium, orientation and display area, and office space. Exterior of the building is fluted concrete block and stone from a local quarry. The viewing area itself is somewhat unusual, since the 12 display tanks are placed on the outside of a circle and spaced so only one tank is visible at a time . . . adding to the visitor's enjoyment. Aquarium tanks are pre-cast concrete and have one-inch thick glass. The windows were custom-made in England.
