  • My family loves the aquarium even with two teenage sons. We avoided it for several years but we learned about the penguin encounter where you get to feed the penguins. That was a joy. After that, we.....  more »
  • Aquariums are fun and usually more fun for little kids. It was a nice way to spend the afternoon. The penguins are adorable. A lot of the exhibits were unavailable when we were there, so it was...  more »
  • I went there with my husband in a Thursday afternoon during our vacation in SLC. We both enjoyed the aquarium very much and its service.  more »
  • What an amazing place! My husband's work reserved a banquet room and we got to have a wall of the shark tank as a wall in the banquet room! Then we had the whole place to ourselves and the staff was so wonderful! I loved the food they served and the atmosphere was so exciting! The staff was very knowledgeable as we walked around the aquarium and asked questions. Can't wait to take all of my kids!
  • Great place to check out some fish and birds! If you like animals, be sure to go here sometime, and consider picking up a pass. Most of the employees were kind and friendly. The ones handing out 3d glasses for their global warming video couldn't care less about the guests. However, the employees that do show some excitement to see you, make up for it, especially at the exhibits like the sting ray touch pool. We got to touch some fish, and the kids loved it. I'd most definitely check this place out, worth the visit, every time.
  • I've been to a few aquariums including the New England Aquarium and this one here in Utah is just as good if not better than any other I've visited! They have many exhibits beyond just fish and water animals which gives some nice variety. As you go through each section of the building it feels as if you're touring around the world in a matter of hours entering South America, Asia, and exploring all things ocean including a shark tank since they realize that's a major attraction to what you want to see. I felt it was well worth the money for admission. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly the whole time and animals are well taken care of and seem to genuinely enjoy themselves rather than seeming like they're being caged and cooped up.
  • This place is a lot of fun. It has plenty of activities for the kids. My son loved it. He had fun looking at all the fish, playing on the playground, and crossing the rope bridge. It's a great place for kids to explore and discover new things. Lots of fun mixed with some good education.
  • I've been to more expensive aquariums with less fun. The exhibits are great, they even have petting pools where you can actually feel various sea life. Overall a very engaging and sensory experience with knowledgeable staff at every corner. Perhaps the best part is how much effort went in to how natural the habitats are. Very much enjoyed my time here. At $20 it's well worth it.
