  • Most local residents don't know that we have an aqaurium right here in Boise. It's a fantastic place to take children to learn about ocean fish and creatures, as well as a selection of land animals. A...  more »
  • Pretty displays of fishes, birds, and reptiles. My two year old boy loved it. Not enough supervision of the fish petting areas, though. The sting rays and sharks need more gentle touches! And don't lo...  more »
  • I've been to many aquariums and loved that the staff were friendly and educational as well as the number of interactive exhibits. We did pay extra to feed at 3 different exhibits but it was worth it! ...  more »

  • SO FUN! You can feed sting rays, sharks, and fish. It was one of the best experiences so far VERY kid friendly they had a little movie room playing movies for kids. :)
  • Small but my son had a great time. He overcame a lot of fears that day. It was awesome!
  • Great place! The have a lot of interactive things to do like feed the fish and sting rays and feed the birds. We love this place my son has a blast every time and it's not too spendy it's affordable and tons of fun!
  • 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.
