Took advantage of the rain and headed to the aquarium. Enjoyed the different displays and tanks. Staff were all friendly and knowledgeable about their fish. The water tunnel was really interesting and stepped off the slow moving walkway many times in order to stay longer....More

They had Christmas trees throughout the aquarium. Saw many great exhibits! Enjoyed seeing the pixie playing with the people! Love seeing the beautiful fish, sharks , stingrays and sea horses!

The interaction with the Horse Shoe Crabs is fantastic. The kids just love it. The stingrays are pretty awesome also. Locals get a discount on tickets, but you have to show proof your a local. Hell, I liked it & I'm 65.

Very nice place to visit. The underwater walkway is definitely awesome. Kids loved the mermaids and had fun interacting with them! Only down fall, its very pricey.

Was there ten years ago and it has gotten better! A little pricey, but well worth it. It's at Broadway at the Beach and that place has tripled in size in the last ten years

The aquarium isn't very large but it is nice for what it tries to be. A little expensive. The staff is friendly and approachable.

Kids had fun for what it was. A little expensive for what would take and hour or two to walk the whole thing, but overall the kids enjoyed.

Located in Broadway at the Beach there is plenty of free parking.The aquarium has exhibits of sea creatures and many other things like glass bottom boats and mermaid exhibits (on weekend afternoons). It is more tourist oriented than science oriented, but still a good place...More

If it's not a day off from school I suspect it would be the same as any Friday, but if you have concerns, I would just give them a call. Really fun place!
