This aquarium is not as large as some but it is beautiful and has some specimens that I have not seen at other aquariums. The staff were very friendly and informative, answering whatever questions you might have about the animals.

It's super expensive for a family to visit! $22.95 for adults and $13.95 for children. Large families may struggle! The exhibits are fun and educational. The otters are adorable! It would have been more fun if we had caught some of the shows.
