ST. LOUIS -The St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station will be open for visitors on December 25, 2019.
The former 19th-century railway hub known as Union Station has been going through a transformation. It is being converted from a shopping mall into an aquatic attraction called the St. Louis Aquarium. Construction began in November 2017.
The $187 million family entertainment facility will have more than 1 million gallons of water and feature more than 13,000 aquatic animals, including more than 60 sharks and rays.
Admission will be $25 for adults, $18 for children, and kids 2 and under are free.
The aquarium is also expected to roll out a $55 membership that gets you through the aquarium and experiences inside Union Station for an entire year.
WOW! – St. Louis is going to LOVE this new aquarium at Union Station. It literally takes you on a journey.
