  • The aquarium is not too far from the Battleship and it has its own parking. I think it's $10 to park. The aquarium is small and in my opinion is more for kids. I did love the Hippo's and the shark net...  more »
  • We absolutely love coming here. The grounds are very nice and easy to navigate. The hippo exhibit is by far the best attraction. Walking distance to the USS NJ as well. 
  • The Aquarium was a highlight. Ideal for children. With petting pools and child-friendly explanations. Very nice. That's why full score.

  • Great place to go see and touch some sea life. My one BIG complaint was about two exhibits. Penguins and Hippos. They are in dirty tiny areas and the Hippos didn't look happy (Not that I know what a happy hippo looks like, but I am pretty sure it's not these two). Was a blow back to zoo's of the 50's as far as those two exhibits are concerned. My real question about those two is what do they have to do with a Aquarium anyway? Both are better in Zoo's where they would have more room and be better taken care of. (I am sure the staff is doing the best they can) Whoever runs this place needs to make that space into something more relevant to a aquarium. But the rest of the exhibits were good, especially the Rays.
  • Great place for a afternoon of aquatic fun. Is one of the only places that I know that has hippopotamuses. Amongst an array of other search life. It also has a petting area for stingrays and a cafeteria where you can grab a bite to eat prices are reasonable and plenty of parking.
  • My daughter and I have been members for two years, and just renewed for our third. WE LOVE COMING TO THE AQUARIUM!! It is the perfect size for a day trip for us. Keep up the awesome work!!
  • Highly recommended. The aquarium is well laid out and provides enough space to linger at the exhibits, even when a crowd is present. The staff is friendly and the interactivity of the exhibits is awesome! Touch a manta ray, feed a penguin, walk through the shark tunnel, have a great time!
  • This place is great! You can do it all in about 2 hours. You can bring your own food. Lots to see and great fit kids of all ages. It is a bit pricey for a family but well worth the adventure one or twice a year.
