VA Aquarium’s $25M renovation to open soon

From the Daily Press


The renovation is scheduled to open Saturday after several delays prevented it from opening as expected on Memorial Day weekend.

The Virginian-Pilot reported Sunday that a coastal Sahara desert habitat will be one of the new things to see. Scorpions, cobras and hedgehogs will be on display.

A Red Sea aquarium and Flores Island exhibit will also be on display–along with the much-awaited Komodo dragons.
