Cast your vote: Wonders of Wildlife receives sixth nomination for 'America's Best Aquarium' by USA Today

Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium (WOW) in Springfield has once again been nominated by USA Today for the honor of “America’s Best Aquarium.” The world’s largest fish and wildlife attraction continues to be a leader in inspiring the next generation of conservation and education enthusiasts.

For the sixth year Wonders of Wildlife has been nominated, having won the prestigious Readers’ Choice Award five times previously. In addition, Wonders of Wildlife was named “America’s Best New Attraction” in its grand opening year in 2017.

The award, decided by USA Today readers, considers the high-quality exhibits and visitors’ interactions at each venue. Johnny Morris and his team are deeply honored to be nominated again for this national award. Since the museum and aquarium opened, millions of visitors have toured its 350,000 square feet of displays and 1.5 miles of trails, featuring more than 800 species of fish, reptiles, mammals, amphibians and birds.

The purpose of Wonders of Wildlife is to entertain, educate and engage people of all ages and backgrounds in the beauty and vitality of the natural world and to inspire them to support conservation causes in their home communities.

Recognition by USA Today and its millions of readers is immensely helpful to the mission of Wonders of Wildlife, and we strongly encourage all of our visitors and conservation supporters to participate in this important survey.

Please cast your vote for conservation.How to vote. Online ballots are open now and fans can show their support once per day by voting at through 11 a.m. CDT on May 13.
