Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune Elected officials, donors and aquarium board members shovel dirt during the groundbreaking of the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium in Draper Wednesday October 24, 2012. The $20 million, 136,000-square-foot aquarium will feature dozens of exhibits and 1 million gallons of water and is scheduled to open December 2013.

The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium opens in Draper Tuesday morning. There are about 5,000 animals making the move from the older, much smaller aquarium in Sandy to the new 136,000-square-foot facility in Draper. Check out photos and video from the Trib’s sneak preview of the new aquarium.
