  • Every time we visit Boise with the grandkids we go to the aquarium. The kids love to feed the fish.. 
  • There is alot to see and touch at the Aquarium. Even my almost adult kids love it! It seems a little pricey to me, but we still visit about once a year. 
  • I have visited aquariums in different states and countries and this is not the top pic. Nevertheless its a nice place for kids to learn and enjoy the outing. The best attraction for me was the petting...  read more »
  • If i could rate this place zero stars I would. The staff is very rude. Not very welcoming. The lady working the front desk was very rude. The facility was small. There wasn't much you could do for it being an aquarium. It was cool that you got to touch sting rays and sharks but for the price i would have expected to be able to do a lot more and see more. Very expensive. I spent 20 minutes in that place and I asked for my money back because it was definitely not worth the $20 for two people. I nicely asked for my money back and the front desk lady was very rude and unprofessional about it and claimed that I was there for over an hour, which was not true. There's no way anybody could spend an hour at that place. It only takes 30 minutes at most to see/touch everything. I will definitely will not be going back to that place. It's a ripoff and very unprofessional.
  • We went to the Aquarium of Boise about a month ago. Having grown up on the central Oregon Coast and visited the Oregon Coast Aquarium and Hatfield Marine Science Center many times, I have fairly high expectations of what an aquarium should look like. This was a complete an utter let down. I felt bad for every living creature who has the misfortune of being held in those exhibits. I think pet stores keep better care of their tanks than this "aquarium" does. Not to mention for the size of the facility this was just plain expensive. I think we spent a total of 15 minutes in there and spent $30 for three people. To put things in perspective, Zoo Boise is much larger in size and costs the same.... I won't be going back.
  • My grandkids love going to the Boise aquarium whenever they are in town. They like it better than the large aquarium where they live because there are so many touchable exhibits.
  • Nice, modest, aquarium. Best part is being able to touch rays. Negative is very expensive for what is offered and only in aquarium, ticket, pricing, worlds are 12 year olds considered adults.
  • I very much enjoyed it and will be going back. It is a small aquarium but they hold other animals like snakes and reptiles. 😃 I went a bit ago so not 100% sure if it's still good place but I doubt that everything turned into a disaster XD loved my experience.
