Watch the ultimate predator at ABQ BioPark Aquarium while standing safely behind a giant viewing window. The shark tank is the centerpiece of the aquarium, which showcases five different kinds of sharks. For another view of the sea, visit the Pacific coral reef tunnel where you walk through an alleyway surrounded by water teeming with life. Consider a guided tour of the shark/ray encounter, where you can get up close to rays and bamboo sharks. You'll also have the chance to see divers in the water feeding the inhabitants. Round out your day with a film at the aquarium theater. Using our custom trip planner, Albuquerque attractions like ABQ BioPark Aquarium can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • This is a cute aquarium, but definitely not one of the larger aquariums I've been to. We went because we bought a combo ticket that gets you into several of the ABQ BioPark attractions. Honestly, I en...  more »
  • Even people from cities with major aquariums are impressed with ours! It's education, semi-interactive, and nice way to get out of the heat.  more »
  • I am not as big of fan of the aquarium, as I am the zoo. I have been to a lot of aquariums, and this one is just average. Love the jelly fish though.  more »

  • For the price point and time of year(January) it was a good day. $30 for a family of four to see aquarium, gardens, and zoo. I was impressed. Aquarium very small but exhibits were beautiful. Zoo undergoing lots of construction completely understandable.
  • Ok so the bio park is awesome! Last time I went I believe I spent $15 or less on a ticket that got me into all three (zoo, aquarium, botanical garden) the aquarium is small but is always great! I've been to bigger aquariums that I enjoyed less than I do this one. I would recommend this place to any friend or family visiting or just for a solid day event. (When you hit all 3)
  • Small but decent aquarium. Lots of stingrays and a few sharks. Best if combined with the other BioPark activities.
  • Not a huge place but def worth checking out.The sharks are the best part- sting rays are really fun.Great for kids- plus next door is zoo and botanical gardens which are awesome- I think you get all 3 for price of one on sundays
  • I think that this a cute little aquarium, but nothing real special. Considering this aquarium is in the middle of a high-desert, its really nice.
