  • My kids (ages 2, 3 and 6) enjoy this aquarium. We have been to a few different one but at this one it is small and homie. I enjoy getting to know the fish and animals and hearing their backgrounds.  more »
  • Loved it! Small but lots to see & touch. Staff extremely knowledgeable & eager to teach & answer questions. Small admission charge fair & cannot cover cost of maintaining exhibit so I'm sure they rely...  more »
  • Great aquarium with everything from turtles to sea horses to sharks & stingray along with some of the most beautiful fish I have ever seen. They even have a touch tank. We were there at feeding time f...  more »

  • The staff is knowledgeable, the sea life is interesting. Definitely worth a visit.
  • This is one of my favorite places to take my children. We went ahead and got a membership so we can go as much as we want. I enjoy taking my children here because it gives them a chance to enjoy science and nature in a safe place. It keeps them away from the television, internet, etc. It is set up great for moms and dads to be able to watch their kids with ease. I am hesitant on where I take all three of my kids on my own. I want to always have a view of all three of them at once. Well this place is set up just so. Moms and dads can come here and relax and have a great view of the whole aquarium and their children's whereabouts. The lighting is dim, the music is relaxing, and there are plenty of seats to sit on while watching your children explore and learn. There are always plenty of volunteers available to answer questions and assist children with the touch tank and turtle exhibit. I always leave here feeling relaxed and happy that my children did something other than watch tv or play on an iPod or tablet. Brenda Ramer is doing an awesome job educating WNC on sea life. Her staff is awesome too!
  • Small business. Has turtle panting
  • this place sucks even when you try to have fun there is only like 20 animals you can see do not waste time trying to go to this place
  • We had our sons 6th birthday party here and it was an awesome experience, the staff was great, everything was well planned by them we just needed to invite people and bring the food they took care of everything else. Highly recommended
