  • I was not impressed when we saw the small building from the parking lot, but the entire family was pleasantly surprised after spending three hours. Make sure you take it slow and stop to read the sign...  more »

  • this aquarium looks small from outside, but they have nice aquarium tanks with little sharks, sting rays, crustaceans all that you could touch. well organized and maintained. tons of varieties of different fish to see probably over 100 tanks at least. there are large turtles, striped bass, crab, sea robins and too many things to list here. fun place for kids and a little gift shop too. i like going here with my kids
  • This place is amazing! I had attended a couple kids' birthday parties there(which were great) and decided to buy an annual membership. We've probably been there 2 dozen times this year already. You can spend a couple hours there or just drop in for 30 minutes on a rainy day. The kids never get tired of it. The collection of sea life is really amazing and the staff obviously has a love of education as well as the local environment. There are regular demonstrations and everything is very hands-on. My 2 year old loves it as much as my 6 year old. I'd say it's a great fit for any age. They also have a large section set up with crafts and other activities including an enclosed area for the younger kids. I cannot recommend this place enough. The regular pricing is reasonable and the membership is a steal!
  • Super cheap and if you're team instinct in Pokemon go you get $2 off admission. Staff was really friendly. There were plenty of touch tanks and lots to see. I will definitely be going back soon!
  • This is a wonderful place! I went with my 18yr old and 2yr old and they both loved it. The little guy will enjoy it even more when he gets a little bigger. They have a great play area for smaller kids. I love that there are interactive displays where you can touch some of the sea creatures! This is a great place to teach your kids (and yourself) about our ecosystem and responsibility.
  • It was great! Just big enough to see everything between naptime. The touch tanks we really cool too! The kids loved it!
