We were headed home from Niagara Falls, and decided to make a stop here. I really don't like giving negative reviews, but I was really disappointed. I knew it wasn't a large facility but I wasn't prepared for exactly how small it was. It was...More

Way overpriced!! I have seen better at my local free zoo. The place looks run down and it's tiny. For a touristy area they could put money in it to make it better.

If you have ever been to an aquarium before, do not pay to go to this one. It is at most an hour activity (that included time waiting for the two short shows) so for the price, you are better off at the Bird Kingdom...More

The sea lion show was cute! They were in the middle of construction for the new penguin display & the drilling/noise was LOUD & disruptive. It was much smaller than I expected & there wasn't a lot to see compared to aquariums I've been to...More

This was my second visit and I remembered it being a bit bigger and more fun. The Sea Lion show is nice, but last time had an art therapy program for the Sea Lion's and sold "art" by them. No mention of that this time....More

My kids (6 and 12) were very satisfied. We were fortunate enough to be able to witness the shark feeding. The seals in the center of the aquarium are so very friendly and entertaining - I could have watched them for hours. Reasonably priced -...More

You can go through in about 30 minutes. It will be longer if you stay for the show. This is a small aquarium. I think it is best suited for children.

Tue Penguins are one of the first exhibits you see, they are to the right of the ticket counter. The Aquarium is home to African Penguins.
