National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium

City of Dubuque, Dubuque, IA — $1.6 million

In addition to the standard lighting and power installation, our work included theatrical lighting and controls along with many aquarium and special animal equipment installations. Emergency power and landscape lighting were included. Power for a hydraulic pump to rotate an early 1900s dredge paddlewheel was included.

Six large aquariums and many exhibits feature giant catfish, turtles, otters, ducks, frogs, reptiles and the history of America's most famous river, the Mississippi River. Interactive exhibits and Living History demonstrations bring this exciting river-front campus in Dubuque, Iowa, to life.
