State Fish

Art Contest


In 2019 Wonders of Wildlife became the new home of the Missouri State Fish Art Contest. The goal, to create future stewards of our lakes, rivers, streams and oceans.

We are closed

After careful consideration and review of the latest developments regarding the impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we have made the decision to close Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium, effective March 18 at 5 p.m. While we hope to reopen in early April, we are watching ongoing developments very closely and will make decisions based on the latest information.
