City of Springfield now the home of America’s Best Aquarium

Springfield, Missouri Mayor Ken McClure congratulates Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium on being voted America’s Best Aquarium. The distinction was received through a vote in a USA TODAY poll.

This follows the January win in a USA TODAY poll that selected Wonders of Wildlife as America’s Best New Attraction.

“We are so fortunate to have the creative genius of Johnny Morris and his world-class attraction as a jewel in our community,” Mayor McClure said. “We are very happy to call Springfield the home of the country’s best aquarium and look forward to meeting people from around the world who come to Springfield to see for themselves how terrific the museum, and this city is.”

Mayor McClure and Mayor Pro Tem Jan Fisk attended the announcement Friday, on behalf of City Council.
