  • This place is very small but I did get my money's worth. There are a lot of amazing exhibits in the aquarium and I actually spent about an hour walking around and found myself enjoying every minute of it. My favorite things is the smaller reef tank outside and the jellyfish exhibits inside. It was a fun place to go to and offers a nice military discount for those that have ID cards.

  • Such a nice aquarium. Definitely would go here again. Had a good time here. The animals were neat. Don't understand why people say this place sucks. I was impressed with the place. It's sad how this place is under appreciated. Great for the kids! Yes I understand it's not the largest aquarium in the world but it's really cool. I recommend going here if you want to kill some time or just spend the day there.

  • Great displays, especially for small fish. Can easily see most things in an hour. Nemo and Dory are there. My 3 year old had a great time. One place let's the kids touch baby hermit crabs. Not a comprehensive list: all kinds of tropical, colorful fish, sea horses, star fish, a small zebra shark, a seal, sea anemones, jelly fish under black lights.

  • What they have is cool but its really small. 1 shark. The rest is fish and seahorses. Took about 15-20 min to go through the whole thing, including taking pictures. $12 for each adult. I personally don't think its worth it.

  • I drove around for an hour to find parking, to only stay in the aquarium for 30 minutes to include a bathroom break with a toddler. I was very UNDERWHELMED. The exhibits were small and nice. Outside all they showcased was a hermit crab and a sea lion. That was it. My admission was cheap and I'm thankful for that. I won't return.
