We enjoyed our visit to the aquarium. The only down side was that it was raining the day we went so the outside shows were canceled or done in the rain.

Some parts are interesting but the rest is just depressing. Too small habitats for the animals, who are clearly unhappy (esp. polar bear), small enough aquarium that their low budget is spent on everything except the animals, instead of improving the lives of the animals....More
