Beautiful Aquariums

This is a thread to display picture of the large AQUARIUMS around in different countries around the globe. It should not only focus on the architecture of the building but also on the aquatic life present in it.

Usually in a place like where i come from we do not have sufficient funds to finance, maintain and expand such projects. I would like to see the versatile designs of aquariums or aquatic musuems.

Coney Island is a lot different now from the time you were talking about it.
