The Aquarium was a little pricey for how small it is, but it's in a great location since you can see the aquarium and then catch an IMAX movie or do a little shopping. The aquarium had a couple of unique tanks that I hadn't seen at any aquarium before. There's some great tunnels and interactive exhibits for kids and... More

This aquarium has a fantastic location inside the Arizona Mills Mall. It was perfect for children that you are able to spend time in the aquarium, shop and then return to the aquarium. My son enjoyed the under aquarium domes. The variety of marine species was impressive. The aquariums were well kept, clean and the marine species appears healthy. We... More

The New England Aquarium it's not, and admittedly, Arizona only has three aquaria that I know about. However, this is a good experience, and their prices are reasonable. It is a good place to take children. The centerpiece seems to be their shark tanks. They have a large one, and there is a walkthrough on one side, and you can... More

In town for a visit in hot July. My daughter and her husband looked for an attraction that was indoors and air conditioned. Her husband had never been to an aquarium so that settled the matter. The website warned that they have heavy attendance on the weekend. This is inside a large and very busy mall. "Quadrant 7" is where?... More

Very good experience to take the family to. It's pricey, but we were able to use POGO passes we bought, which give you really good deals on several places to visit in Phoenix area. Our grand daughters enjoyed it very much.

excellent place to take the kids. price is a little steep, but look for coupons where kids get in free with paid adult. Not only was there great marine life to view, there was interactive activities for the kids. pretty cool place.

Very nice smallish aquarium that my grandson loved. Located in a mall. I loved it too! Nice place to cool off.

The aquarium is pretty small and a bit pricey ($18/person) but well maintained. It took us about an hour and a half to make it through. There is a rainforest cafe in the same mall that offers coupons for free admission for children and you can sometimes find other discount coupons online. If you have small children, ask for the...

I'm an artist currently doing a series of paintings on fish. There are very few places to look at and research live moving fish in Arizona, so when I came across this place, I was hopeful. The reviews and the appearance implies that it is geared towards small children. And it didn't help we were in line with a bunch... More
