  • 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.

  • Meticulously maintained and spotless tanks. Gorgeous reef tanks. Not too crowded even on a Saturday afternoon. Worth the $12 admission, plan on 1-2 hour visit.

  • My children loved this aquarium. It's well worth the entrance fee to give them a chance to explore and learn about the ocean and its precious resources. Plus, if you remember to bring your camera, there are priceless photo ops in every corner! Adults can learn a lot too, and simply be entertained, and leave with the good feeling of having helped support a worthy institution.

  • Great value. Lots of coral and colorful fish. Awesome jellyfish exhinit. Mostly indoors so ideal activity for a hot day.

  • Really nice place and worth the 12$ Explanations are short and on point and there are lots of beautiful animals displayed...
