Was blown away by the polar bear and walrus exhibits. And thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience .. even on a pretty cold winter day. Something for everyone.

I've been to the new Ripleys Aquarium in Toronto so in comparison to that, it wasn't that great. You didn't need a whole lot of time to get through it. It took us about 45 minutes. Loved the outdoor animals but I always have a few concerns when animals seem agitated with being where they are. Some certainly seemed agitated.... More

We also enjoyed the outdoor animals such as the little white fox, seals, walrus and polar bears. Yes, the bear did pace a bit,... More

We were there for about 3 hours and had a great time lots to see. Our favorite was the walrus. But the fish tanks were neat as well. I recommend this place for sure. Staff at location were friendly and great.

Late December visit with our teenagers and we all loved it - even if we weren't dressed as warmly as we should have been! Arrive early when school is out, as it's packed with young families. Plenty of indoor and outdoor activities and sights.

We have been to the Aquarium 4-5 times in the last year. We enjoy the outdoors animals and shows as well as all the indoor species. Our families' favorites are the polar bears, the walrus and the seals (outdoors), the Awesome Ocean Discovery (a tunnel where all the fish are above you), the touch bassin with the stingrays as well...

It was chilly but the outdoor animals did not seem to mind. Seals, Walrus, Polar bears, Arctic Foxes are all very entertaining. Indoors the many aquariums are filled with fresh and salt water creatures. It is smaller than Ripley's in Toronto but a great day none the less as they have a wonderful park for kids (in winter a evening... More

Nice setting on the edge of the river. The jellyfish exhibit was the best I have ever seen. Better in summer months since you have to walk outside to get between buildings.

We visited the aquarium in November and therefore it wasn't a great time of year for the outdoor exhibits. However, we enjoyed walking through the inside.

Visited the aquarium on a beautiful winter's day and was very impressed. Fun to see the polar bears, walruses and seals outside in the cold and snow. Inside, there were so many highlights - the huge octopus, the jeyyfish exhibits, the touchtank with the rays, etc., etc. Unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy the outdoor snowslides but we will...
