The former Maine Aquarium in Saco closed in July of 1997 but will re-open again in Biddeford by spring of 2009. Plans were to re-open in spring of 2008 however this has been delayed one year as this country struggles to rise above the current economic recession.

The new Maine Aquarium will be much bigger and better, and have more exhibits then ever.

This web site is much the way it was left when the former Maine Aquarium closed in 1997 but we will be having a new state of the art web site to match the new Maine Aquarium.

Note: This site was constructed years ago during the early entry of the world wide web and when the general modem speed was 9,600 bps, thus the reason photos, etc., herein were kept at a minimum. Though sub-standard by today's technological advances this site remains available for your viewing to give you an idea of who we were and what the Maine Aquarium was about... and all without a dollar from the taxpayers!
