AQUARIUM FIRE: Dubuque Museum Back Open

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The damaged wing of the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque is back open.

The museum was closed after a fire last Saturday.  The fire damage to the building was minimal but heavy smoke and water left a big mess behind.

Crews have been working all week to clean up the building.

Although insurance money will help fix the fire damaged parts of the building, the museum is accepting donations for any additional costs.

No people or animals were hurt in the fire.
