It's basically one large room with tanks about. But they have several staff members to give you a history lesson on particular fish at given times.

The aquarium is not large but it was great just the same. The ticket purchase allows you to reenter as many times during that day as you like. This works well if you miss a particular exhibit and want to come back later to view...More

Good smaller aquarium in Key West. The highlight was watching the shark feeding and learning about them. Multiple exhibits were being renovated. Had a smaller touch tank with some stingrays which seemed popular.

Interactive activities with sharks and stingrays. A lot of different fish life to see. It doesn't take a lot of time to go through which might be a good thing for small children.

The aquarium is very interesting and educational and is doing its best despite the damage received during the recent hurricane. The staff are very informative regarding the turtles and it is a worthy place to visit.

This is a very unique aquarium! We got to enjoy the turtle feedings as well as learn about the injured turtles and their recoveries and future endeavors. We toured the rest of the aquarium and then watched as they fed the sharks indoors and outdoors....More
