NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Aquarium of Niagara is celebrating its 55 year anniversary Friday.

While the aquarium is closed due to COVID-19 the organization will be releasing a special "look-back" video and a commemorative shirt will be for sale with proceeds benefiting the aquarium's animal collection.

“Reflecting on 55 years of history has made us stronger in our response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Gary Siddall, Executive Director of the Aquarium of Niagara. “A number of strategic decisions have positioned us to build a sustainable future for the Aquarium, and I am fully confident that we will continue to celebrate decades worth of success as we think bigger, bolder and with more innovation about what the future will look like. Our mission makes it clear that we will partner with our community and inspire people to make a difference of aquatic life.”
