  • This was such a fun & enlightening School Field Trip. It was clean, the Cafe served great food, I learned so much I didn't know. The Kids LOVED it. There was so much variety of Sea Animals. All-In-All great place!
  • Awesome place for the kids. Regular admission price seems a but steep but I'd still go back. Food prices are very reasonable compared to zoo and museums. Plenty of kid level exhibits so not too much having too hold the little ones, they can see probably 80% without any aid.
  • Love fishes and wildlife? Then swim on down to the Cleveland Aquarium! The price of admission was well worth the entrance, there's a plethora of watery wildlife to greet you. Best parts were the jelly fish tank, hands on section, and of course, the Shark SeaTube. You gotta come check out this aquarium, it's in an old power plant!
  • Great place to visit on a rainy day! Nice change from the Akron & Cleveland Zoo, great use of the space and it was nice to have something different for my 4 year old and I to do together in Cleveland. He was able to be entertained for 3+ hours.
  • Absoluteky incredible. Love it more and more everytime I go. Definitely worth the trip. Shark tank is breathtaking.
