A 46,000-square-foot aquarium featuring a coral reef, a touch pool and more “may be coming” to Branson in 2020, according to a website teasing the venue.
Los Angeles-based Kuvera Partners, which bought the site of the proposed aquarium for $2.7 million in 2014, is behind the project, which would redevelop Branson’s long-vacant Grand Palace Theater.
Kuvera presented the plan for its “Aquarium at the Boardwalk” to the Branson Board of Aldermen during a Thursday meeting, the Branson Tri-Lakes News reports.
