New York Aquarium Reviews & Ratings

  • New York Aquarium’s extraordinary Ocean Wonder: Sharks! will replace your fear of sharks w/ love & admiration. The 57,500-square-foot building holds 784,000 gallons of water, where 12 species of sharks and six species of skates and rays swim amid 115 other species of marine life. In its detailed, compelling presentations, the Aquarium doesn’t deny that many sharks R apex predators, routinely capable of wiping out a school of fish and swimming on serenely. But that’s part of the point: apex predators are crucial to the balance of nature, helping maintain coral reef habitats and ensuring the species diversity that’s crucial to a healthy ecosystem.

  • Stopped here on a nice October day and had a good time. The shark exhibit is as nice as any I've seen, and they are in the process of building some other new exhibits. A few of parts of the campus are needing fixed up, but overall it was clean and well maintained. If you like visiting major aquariums I think you'll have a nice time.

  • Sadly not all the exhibits were open so we only had a few areas to see. The new shark building was amazing! I was a little surprised with the music being played at the roof top cafe (not exactly family friendly).

  • Wonderful experience! Visited on a Saturday afternoon, everyone moved through at a good pace! Shark Encounter was AMAZING! Very interesting and educational! Fun for all ages! When exiting the subway, take a RIGHT to go to the NY Aquarium/Coney Island or you will walk around a long, block. 🦈🐡🐠

  • If you are a New Yorker or visiting New York City, this is definitely worth a visit. I have been here countless times as an educator and a parent. I do wish I could give it five stars but every time I go part of it is closed. With that said there is still so much to see. The new edition of the Shark Tank is pretty sweet. Seeing sharks swimming above your head is awesome. The facility is very clean which is not common in New York City. The sea lion show is adorable- the perfect amount of time for children to sit and be engaged. And if you get hungry check out the Ocean Side Grill, the food is pretty good and the view is amazing! I recommend the New York Aquarium for all ages.
