  • Our 8 year old wanted to go to this aquarium, he and my husband had never been in there. I told him it wasn't really worth it when I was younger, but we went anyway. It's not a lot in there and it nee...  more »

  • This aquarium is more of a small aqua/ reptilian zoo exhibit than aquarium. Since it only costs $6, it’s worth the time and a few bucks to see some interesting critters, from piranhas to tarantulas. D...  more »

  • Idk why people gave this place negative reviews! This little place is very cool. My kids loved it and got to read about all the different things that make these creatures unique. Let alone play and interact with "slow poke" the tortoise they have just walking around freely in there. We had a great time and would definetley recommend it to anyone!
  • Waste of money. Small. Dirty. Took 15 minutes to walk through and that includes a bathroom trip. Would have not gone in but we had our 3 small kids with us.
  • Pay no attention to the negative comments. On a small budget the animals are clean and healthy, and they have done a great job with a variety of fish and reptiles. It is a great way to spend an hour, and be sure to say hello to Slow Poke the tortoise. If you want elaborate displays then go somewhere else and spend $25 each for admission. It is totally worth it.
  • I really enjoyed this aquarium! Honestly, I didn't go in expecting much but for 6 dollars, I was willing to risk it. They have a 20ish year old tortoise that just roams around during the day. Hanging out with Pokey was worth 6 bucks alone. But they also had a pretty decent variety of animals. They even told us when they were feeding the piranhas so we could see it. We would definitely go again.
  • If you have small children that love animals this is great
