  • This is always a fun place to go with kids. They loved the fish and they even have a new exhibit and the kids got to touch a fish. Made for an extra fun time. 
  • Feeding time at 11am by divers was neat to watch. Divers interacted with the kids through the glass, and program narration was good. The sizes of several freshwater fish blew us away. We got discount ...  more »

  • The new sturgeon touch tank is really cool! The aquarium is easy to get to, and visible from Hwy 35. Fantastic views of the lake and the bridges. The otters are super cute!
  • Our 2 year old had a blast here. He especially loved the hands on area with the water and boats that were a small scaled version of the great Lakes area. Lots of fun fish to look at and we even found NEMO!
  • A neat, fresh-water aquarium with lots for kids to do. It's not huge, what I've found is perfect for a 1/2 day visit with my 4-6 yr olds. There is a lot aimed at kids and teaching them about the local environment. The otters are a must-see! So lively and playful. If you have younger kids I'd recommend bringing an extra shirt or set of clothes if they are toddler aged. There is a fun hands-on exhibit teaching kids how the big boats go through the Great Lakes Locke system. They tend to get soaked and love playing with the boats. We always save that for last. :) It's a bit pricey but if you are local you can get a years pass that makes it more affordable.
  • Good place to learn about fish and almost everything related to the great Lakes. Get to see some playful otters, and pet some real Sturgin fish. Get to see some fresh water fish and salt water fish.
  • A very fun place to spend a morning or afternoon. There is plenty here to keep the attention of the young or old. The otter exhibit is particularly captivating. Also, if you want a great view of the lift bridge in action, the aquarium has balconies with great views.
