The Toledo Zoo Aquarium will get a $25 million, nearly three-year makeover.

The renovation shutdown begins after Sunday’s final day open to the public. It’s expected to reopen in April 2015.

Fishes and invertebrate curator Jay Hemdal says the inside of the building, which opened in 1939, will undergo an extensive renovation.

The interior size will stay the same but the water volume of exhibits will more than triple to 178,000 gallons from 46,000 gallons.

The largest exhibit will expand to take up an entire rotunda.
