We're visiting from out of town and were looking for an indoor activity for the kids. This aquarium was a great find. Lots of interesting exhibits. Our kiddos really enjoyed the tour. Only suggestion would be to buy tickets online to avoid the line.

Definitely buy tickets onine to save on entry fee. Plan about 2-4 hours, depending on how much you like to read the details. Listen to the presentations, fun and interesting facts. Nice hands on options, fun scavenger hunt for younger kids.

The informational machines that tell you facts about the creatures were not functioning. The way it was promoted made it seem as if it was going to be bigger. We went through the whole thing in about 15-30 minutes. My family and I were disappointed.

Certainly not the best aquarium I have ever visited. Paid the reduced online entrance fee of $17 per person but found that the aquarium only took 1 hour to go through. I guess the size of the aquarium is appropriate for young children but was...More
