This place is small and I don't think it has anything to do with a National Park. The grandson liked it especially with the large turtle that was crawling around the aquarium floors.

The family and I are in hot springs for our yearly vacation. We wanted to do something we haven't done before while here. Decided to go to aquarium. Kinda small and outdated but still fun and fairly inexpensive.

Price is right for this tiny aquarium. Kids enjoyed it. Small setup but very informative. Turtle was loose walking around.

Pricey for not much to see. The turtles were nice, and some of the fish were rare. But not all that big. In and out in 15 minutes

Despite the name the aquarium is not part of the national park. The aquarium has a variety of fish, amphibians, and other animals. There is a tortoise that walks around the aquarium that is super friendly.

Pet store animals. Betas, Ciclids, Chinese fighting fish and more pet store animals on display. Small, dark, smelly and poorly maintained facilities. If this town has only this level of quality, just keep on driving. The chamber of commerce should shut them down for deceptive...More

Small but still interesting. The younger kids there were very excited to see the different fish/reptiles/tarantulas.

I think it was $4 or $5 for a child to get into the aquarium but can't remember for sure. I know it didn't cost much for me and my child to get in at all. Hope that helps!!
