In 1991, during the Easter holidays, the exhibition "Go to the sharks" was held for the first time. Here the members of Aquariumvereniging Discus presented their animals to the public. Since then, the exhibition was held every Sunday. In 2003 Aquazoo Leerdam got a zoo license. In October 2007 it was announced that housing the aquarium association did not fit into the plans for renovation of the nursing home. However, in December 2007 an agreement was concluded and Aquazoo Leerdam could stay in the nursing home. The current Aqua Zoo is operated by Leerdam aquarium society.
