Onondaga County Aquarium

Why an Aquarium?

  • We like tourists in Onondaga County...A LOT! Believe it or not, Onondaga County and Central New York is a top destination for folks from across the Northeast and beyond to come visit and stay. An aquarium in Onondaga County will  be yet another magnet for tourists and when tourists come, they spend their money at our restaurants, shops, hotels. This means our economy grows and strengthens and that's really good for ALL of us!
  • An aquarium in Onondaga County will also create hundreds of new jobs. Thanks to all of those new visitors to our community, not only will there be new jobs at the aquarium, but the many local businesses that will provide goods and services to the new facility and our many new visitors!
  • Aquariums are magical and scientific at the same time! They provide lots of educational opportunities for children of all ages as well as a lifetime of memories for the whole family!

Let's face it...Aquariums are pretty cool!
