  • Nice, but was expecting more about the Great Lakes. As stated before, small and expensive. Not a bad 2 hours as I did learn a few things, but was looking for something else. 
  • We saw the website we were very excited to plan a visit to the aquarium. September 30, 2016 we arrived at the aquarium and to our surprise we had to pay for parking. It is also in a very run down area...  read more »
  • Adult admission is $19.95 which I think is in-line for a typical aquarium of this size. I spent time visiting each display and read each sign. I was able to get through the exhibits in about 1 hour. I...  read more »
  • We had a really nice time the kids enjoyed themselves and learned a lot. Other then the really long line and after standing there for about 15 minutes. And employee walks out and grab the big group of people in front of us I don't know if they were family or special guest but they all got passes and went before us without having to stand in line that was the only part that's a little bit frustrating other than that everything was wonderful
  • Great for the kids! They had a memorable time and the shark feeding was beyond cool! Recommend to anyone! BTW be sure to bring a Cleveland sports apparel item as they have a promotion where you save $5 for each person wearing something. We didn't know so we missed out. Don't know if they still have the promo but call to find out.
  • We enjoyed this aquarium. The space used in the old power house makes it that much more interesting. Unusual displays of jelly fish, seahorses and tortiose amazed the grandkids. Worth every penny. Bought the season pass so we can go back.
  • We love visiting the Cleveland Aquarium. It has many different features. The place is housed in what used to be a power plant, so the architecture is really interesting and lovely. The top feature is the huge shark tank at the end. It's a bit expensive for what it is but not terribly so.
  • An excellent mid-size aquarium. Lots of species with many crowd pleasers. Petting the sting rays was great fun. Cheap and plentiful parking.
