    The aquarium is small, which makes it great for smaller kids they have touch tanks that allow the smaller kids to have a hands on experience, just seems limited which I understand. I was hoping for mo...  more »

    Very small aquarium but great for little kids. It would be nice if they could make it alittle bigger so older kids would enjoy going as well.  more »

    Its a fun little aquarium to see once.it hasnt changed much since opening a few years ago, so not a place to keep going to. The sharks and sting rays are the best and most entertainment they offer. Se...  more »

    They were great! The Aquarium isn't huge, but it provides hands-on experience for kids. They have a nice size variety of aquatic life and reptiles and birds. We went on Autism Awareness night and they had the lights down low and the nose level was down as well. The kids had fun and the staff was outstanding.

    For a small aquarium it was pretty awesome. They had some beautiful fish. They had three tanks that allowed you to feed the fish. Two of the tanks had tropical fish which are beautiful and very gentle when taking food from your hands. The other tank has small sharks and stingrays. They don't hurt at all when you feed them. They are so awesome. They also have a few titles to look at. Which are always cool for the kids. And lastly they had several beautiful birds that you could feed as well. I loved the aquarium. I figured we would be in and out in no time. Nothing to cool but I was proven wrong. I highly recommend going. Great place.

    It is a small aquarium but what they have done with the space is great and it is a good time when you go. Without children my wife and I we're there for about 2 hours and had a good time. If you take the time with the interactive tanks it's a fun experience.

    Very friendly staff and over all clean location. Disappointed that 3/4 of the exhibits were empty & had no animal. Quite a small amount of fish so it's pricey & not worth the 10 per adult.

    Beautiful exhibits. The Kids love being able to see and touch things. It's a small aquarium but they fit alot in it. Worth going to and definitely worth getting a family pass. Some days it's crowded and seems a little dirty. But usually its kept clean and theres plenty of room to move about. We love going here and always have fun!
