  • Awesome place for the whole family to visit. So many animals and exhibits to see, many different things for the kids to have hands on experience.  more »
  • We love this aquarium. The fact that they have more than just water/sea creatures is a plus. The kids love it. The gift shop is ridiculously expensive(typical). Great hands on and photo ops!  more »
  • The admission is pretty steep but it is a fun place to spend an afternoon. All the movies are included in admission so you could just watch all the different 3D and 4D shows and then see all the exhib...  more »

  • My family and I are from out of town and we specifically planned a day to visit the aquarium. It was well worth the trip!! Very fun and family friendly! We had a blast! I have been told that if you plan to go on a week day instead of a weekend, then the crowds will be much less in number. However, we attended on a Saturday and never felt too crowded. It was a great experience!
  • The wife and I really enjoyed ourselves. We needed a break from lagoon, so we swung over here. The entire place is themed well, and they have a pretty good assortment of fish. The tight rope thing was fun to walk across, and they even had leopards! Great way to spend the afternoon. If you have an AFCU card you get $5 off a person, makes it definitely worth it. We spent about 2 hours here, and that gave us plenty of time to see everything even with how busy it was. We didn't try the food, but we hear it is pretty good. If you need a break from the park, or just need something to do, its worth the stop.
  • Beautiful exhibits showcasing life all around the world. Petting the stingrays and starfish are my kids favorite activity. The shark and penguin exhibits are really cool also. They also have a large play area that kids can run around in. It costs $3 for 2 hours (worth it!).
  • One of the wonders of Utah. I highly, highly recommend this for a family, for solo photographer, and for group tours it's a blast. It is such a great place to spend a long afternoon. Great shark exhibit, with a wonderfully knowledgeable staff. Fun. Friendly. Worth every cent.
  • Our family visited on a late Saturday afternoon about two hours before close at 6 pm, which seems a little early and I was concerned we wouldn't have enough time to see everything. We made it through all the exhibits at a leisurely pace, though, but did not see any of the films. Plan on maybe 2-1/2 or 3 hours with a film or if you or your little ones are really big on sea life. This is not the Monterey Aquarium which I consider the absolute best, but as a regional aquarium it holds its own. Just off the freeway, office park location is convenient but not particularly pleasant, and it seemed expensive without any discounts. I am told by others that a membership is definitely worth it if you live nearby and will visit often.
