  • We really enjoyed our visit to the Estuarium! I love museums and there were lots of interesting factoids to read/learn about the Gulf and Mobile Bay area. I think our favorite part was the sting ray tank. The Ray's were very entertaining to watch and even seemed to enjoy being "petted". There were lots of fish, turtles, etc. In tanks to see as well. We would definitely go back the next time we are in the area.
  • This was a great visit. The staff and volunteers are super nice and knowledgeable. They answered all our questions and went above and beyond in their customer service. There a ton of exhibits to look at and a lot of interactive exhibits for the children, my 3 year old had a blast and did not want leave!
  • Lots of exploring and hands on experimenting here. Taking your time walking through is important in order to learn and get the full experience. My time was beautiful and enlightening.
  • An inexpensive outing for the family that is worth the time and money. It is small, but the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. There's several hands on activities such as touching the sting rays and horse shoe crabs. We learned about the special ecosystem and marine life in the Gulf and Mobile Bay.
  • Clean, fun and informative. Great touch tank with active critters. We got to touch the nurse shark and rays! Great exhibits and fun to do with the kiddos.
