We went early after the aquarium opened. It was fun looking at the dinosaurs, exotic fish, sharks, sting rays and stone crabs. It took us about 2 hours to walk through. The cost was $20.99ea. There is also a IMAX theater but extra to attend. The boardwalk around the aquarium was enjoyable as well. Tip# try the doc popcorn and feed the fish below the pier. The speed boat racer looked fun but our time was limited. There are a few amusement rides and a arcade. There are shops and places to eat. You could probably spend hours at this location walking and taking in the sights. Enjoy your stroll...

Well a rainy day took us here instead of the beach, a bit costly & not that much to do inside, if you are going, go early.
The travelator under the Aquariam is worth the $$$$$ you pay to get in though, this is brilliant.

The Aquarium is one of the most unique attractions in Myrtle Beach and if you go especially after having a fun morning on the beach it's like having never left the Ocean! And that's a good feeling if you love Ocean and marine life as much as we do. Always a must go visit for my family!

My daughter enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit and my son loved all of the sharks. They both enjoyed touching the hermit crabs and rays. Great military discount!!
