The Fluvarium is a public environmental education centre focusing on freshwater and riparian ecology. The word Fluvarium is derived from the latin root “fluv” meaning flowing water. Fluvarium therefore literally means “windows on a stream”, and aptly describes the nine large viewing windows that allow our guests a glimpse into a natural, freshwater habitat.
The Fluvarium also holds a naturally lit catering venue that is a popular spot for weddings, meetings, conferences and events. The natural light from the two-storey atrium and 14 windows transports guests to a natural retreat without ever leaving the city.
The Fluvarium is run by the Quidi Vidi/Rennie’s River Development Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to environmental education and freshwater ecology.
