The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium has become one of Utah´s most unique and popular attractions, and is definitely a must-see if you are planning a trip to Utah. Exhibits feature sharks, rays, seahorses, Sea jellies, octopus, piranha, a rescued Green sea turtle, Gentoo penguins and more! It is a unique opportunity for the many landlocked Utahans, particularly children, who have not previously had the chance to interact with such creatures.

  • This aquarium was across the highway from our hotel. It was not just about aquatic life, but also frogs, spiders, butterflies, birds, and land animals. Seems trying to capture the whole ecosystem. A 4...  more »
  • I had a membership and went three times. The habitats are well done with a variety of landscape, mammals,birds and fish. I don't think the price is expensive; it takes a lot of money to take good care...  more »
  • Keep in mind that Salt Lake City is land locked in the high desert. That aside, this is a quality mid-sized family friendly aquarium. There is a good variety of main attractions in each of the themed ...  more »

  • Great place to spend a few hours at... The staff is very knowledgeable about the animals.... Super clean place.... extremely kid friendly... also involves the adults in different ways as well.... otters were my favorite part along with trying to find all the little colorful frogs (never found all of them) great place all around!
  • This is a great place for a quick visit or an all-day Adventure. We have a season pass so it's super convenient to go for an hour or two or spend half the day there were more. There's always something to learn and watch. The staff is very wonderful and knowledgeable about many things. My daughter's love it and it's fun to see them smile and learn. They seem to have something going on all the time either the butterfly exhibit the new sloths the snow leopards the sharks the list goes on and on.
  • I attended a seminar that was held in their conference room. It was awesome; and somewhat distracting because at the front of the room, behind the guest speakers, was a view of the shark tank. It was incredible. Lunch was catered in and was also quite good. The seminar was really informative, but the whole experience was greatly enhanced by having the conference at the aquarium. On our breaks, we had the opportunity to walk through the exhibits. I got to touch a butterfly that landed on my finger. And we got to touch a baby stingray and other little fish.
  • This is an aquarium experience that rivals that of coastal aquariums. In fact it is significantly better than some which is incredibly surprising. The price can be a bit steep, but it's worth it. The otters are my favorite! I've never ate or bought anything from the gift shop, so this is a review purely on the animal exhibits. This is a one of a kind, must visit aquarium. Whether you are local or tourist, visit the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium!
  • Amazing! We went during the night for a private event. It was NOT crowded which was very nice. We were there for three hours and didn't get bored. The place was clean and animals were very healthy! I don't like going to the Zoo because the animals are so unhappy. I didn't get that feeling at all here! The staff talked to my children about the parrots and sloth, educaring them about wildlife. I wish the gift shop was open though. I would have loved to buy some toys!
