  • Brought my 88 year old grandmother because she never saw a penguin. She was as excited as my 5 year old. It was a priceless moment I'll always cherish. It is great that they offer rental wheelchairs b...  read more »
  • I was hesitant to visit the aquarium after reading the many bad reviews especially because it's 3 hours away from me. After much deliberation, we decided to take the chance and go. It was such an inno...  read more »
  • Perfect place to head with the kids on a hot day. My son had a great time and was very excited by all the touch exhibits. The highlight was the rope bridge over the sharks and seeing the hippos 
  • 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.
  • I was really looking forward to visiting the zoo with my kiddies today but left sooner than I wanted too. I had purchased the admission meal combo ticket, but we didn't stay to eat. I expected a good number of visitors but was not expecting so many camps of large groups attending (thought perhaps there was adesignated day campers would attend, unless today was one of them). It was very overwhelming and the line to redeem our lunch was endless. The exhibits were nice and the aquarium would probably be nicer to visit on a less busy season, although I thought there would be more to see, the pictures online gave me higher expectations. The glass tank exhibits were small so it didn't accommodate the number of people crowding around the to take a peek. The shark exhibit was cool and the biggest. Overall, did not meet my expectations or maybe I came on a bad day.
  • I wasn't impressed. Maybe it was because there were multiple camps there and the camp counselors didn't pay attention to the campers, but I didn't have a great time. I was pushed by kids and counselors out of the way so they could see in front of me... I wasn't in front of exhibits in a way you couldn't stand next to me. Campers were running Wild throughout the aquarium. No one had any sense of respect.
  • I really loved the sea turtles and shark exhibit. There is a tunnel and they swim right over ur head. They have two very large hippos and are great to see. You can also touch sting rays and baby sharks along with other aquatic life..I really enjoy and appreciate bring that close to them. Cons: food is way over priced. Gift shop is double over priced
  • I liked all the varieties of fish they had there, and it was fun petting the sharks and sting rays. I also thought crossing over the Sharks was pretty cool. But the prices in the gift shop are very very high. For a stuffed animal about the size of a wash cloth it is $10. For one about the size of a throw pillow it is $35. That is ridiculous you would think the smaller ones would be like 3-5 dollars but they are $10. And the workers there are very rude. One of them almost made me cry. I wanted to get one of the smaller stuffed animals but I was 34 cents short and she asked me if I had 34 cents but I said no and then she just took the stuffed animal away with out giving me a chance to even maybe ask one of my friends if they had 34 cents. And she said it in a blank attitude like she didn't even care about my feelings. I mean come on I'm a kid can't she just give me a break I mean 34 cents doesn't even make a big difference. It won't hurt them if they don't get the 34 cents , she did the same thing to my friend too. That made me sad when she took it away. But good thing my friend had 50 cents and gave it to me. When I got it again I tried to go to a different lady. The lady I had had short brown hair like a boys cut with glasses and she was kind of tall maybe average height. But other than the gift shop and some of the workers the Camden Aquarium is pretty cool.
