This cannot be compared to anything large ie Baltimore Aquarium, as it is very, very small. As an Adult you will probably be around in 20 minutes, children seem to like the touch tanks so family may be here up to an hour. They are carrying out building work at the moment on new exhibit on 2nd floor. Strange Diving... More

We looked online, and wondered why it was only $8 ea. admission. We got there and realized it was very small, but definitely a great thing to do on a rainy Monday! And, you can pet sharks! What more could you ask for? We enjoyed it very much. No crowd and we could move around at our leisure. There are... More

We were here on a rainy Saturday in March so the weather was pretty miserable and I figured it would be packed. Luckily, there were others there but never like we felt squashed (something that often happens at the Camden and Baltimore aquariums.) The animals aren't amazing but its great for kids because 1. its relatively cheap 2. they won't... More

I have been to this aquarium twice now. It is fairly small but they have many interesting tanks and two touch tanks. Compared to the larger aquariums I find that you can get closer to the animals and not feel rushed. My favorite is definitely the baby ray tank on the second floor. $8 admission for adults.

The aquarium is worth the visit. It is in a very nice spot in Atlantic City. There are some nice views from the 3rd floor. The employees are very friendly and helpful.

Place is very small but that's why is only $8 to get in. Mostly fish, turtle, snake, and sting ray. Don't expect whales or dolphin. Got a 3rd floor displays helmet for underwater welding. Friendly staff who cares about the local businesses and animals.

The place is small. Though it's 3 floors, the top floor is an observation platform and that was closed for the day. Though they didn't have much to show, what they did have was informational and professionally delivered. Staff was helpful and nice. We were in and out in under an hour. The place itself is a bit out of... More

We took our kids to the Atlantic City aquarium when in the area and they all enjoyed the visit (ages 8, 6 and 4). While it is a small place, the activities in it are fun for young children and we were able to easily spend a couple of hours there. We were also lucky to happen upon a presentation... More

Beside the casinos, Atlantic City also offers great family entertainment and the Aquarium is one of them. Plan to spend several hours inside. Loads of fish, different species and plenty to kids the happy. Adults also like it too.

The Atlantic City Aquarium is a nice place but very small. They advertise three floors but the top floor just has a few artifacts and no exhibits of fish. Each floor area is very small compared to other better known aquariums. There are a couple of touch tanks with small sharks and star fish in one and rays in the... More
