Fresno Aquarium (Phase One) designed by Arthur Dyson, FAIA

The Fresno Aquarium is a project of the nonprofit 501(c)(3) Aquarius Aquarium Institute designed by Fresno's own award-winning architect, Arthur Dyson, FAIA, dean emeritus of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.

The Institute owns ten acres of land overlooking the San Joaquin River directly adjacent to Highway 99 at the northern entrance to the City and County of Fresno. The property was generously donated to the Institute by the Roy and Betty Jura family and is being built through the generosity of people like you. It will be an oasis for education and recreation in California's San Joaquin Valley.

We are committed to funding the phases of our Aquarium debt-free entirely through donations both large and small.

Our current From the Ground Up capital campaign at is raising funds to build our very first building - the Aquaculture Building!

We invite you to join the vision today.
