  • Having been to many aquariums this one was just basic. It had nice displays but it was pretty small. Nice to get indoors out of the sun after visiting other areas of the bio park.  more »
  • Daughter and family moved to Albuquerque so they wanted to get a membership. This was a wonderful experience for grandson & we adults! Highly recommend!!  more »
  • We went to a special event one evening and were very impressed with the high quality displays of fish and other marine wildlife. I especially enjoyed just sitting and watching the fish and sharks swim...  more »

  • What a fun place to take the kids! It's a small aquarium but they have beautiful specimens and will be back. My baby daughter loved all the colorful fish! I will be taking her later when she's older.
  • What a treasure. Be sure to be there during their feeding times to see the sharks eat! Also, the BUGarium (bug+aquarium) is a must see. Watch leaf cutter ants walking along a vine a couple feet above your head! Also check out the gardens which are wonderful to get lost in. Great variety and everyone that works there is so friendly!
  • This is one of the best zoos I've ever been to it is not biggest zoo but the zoo is beautiful and it has wonderful habitats for the animals they are definitely valued and well taken care of. It makes for a great outing with the family and is very affordable.
  • I am a BioPark member, I love taking my son here. He loves seeing all the fish, especially the huge shark aquarium the end of the aquarium.
  • We paid $25 for 2 adults and a 2 year old. I have to say it was THE BEST $25 I've spent. Sadly we never made it to the zoo portion. But the aquarium was a nice sight, scariest lobsters I've ever seen, and I never thought is see multiple sharks that close up. I'd rather come here than SeaWorld to be honest. All in all great place to escape the heat and distract the kiddos. They also have restaurant at the end of the exhibit, however I can't comment on it as we didn't dine there
