A lot of fun.

Especially the beluga whales. I swear they pose for the camera! So cute. The rest of the Aquarium was very nice as well, and was thoroughly enjoyed.

We really enjoy this aquarium. It's mostly outdoors so plan your visit around that. They have everything from beluga whales to penguins. We did both encounters and they we're both so amazing! Love this place.

$39 per ticket is a bit much, but the attraction was amazing. They need to clean the glasses for the 4D show.

My husband and I brought our 15 month old to the aquarium on a Saturday. Even though it's off season, we expected it to be busy on the weekend. We were pleasantly surprised! The exhibits were great, and it was not crowded at all! Our daughter had a blast! We all did! The staff was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable.

I enjoyed this aquarium very much with my 7 year old. It's just small enough to allow them some latitude to run around without having to hold their hand. Seal show was great!

We went on a nice weather day, but the real issue for this place is that much of the things to see are outdoors, so on rainy days or cold weather, it would not be a good idea to visit if you want the full experience. I really enjoyed this format, but confused to see it in CT. Seems more... More

My fiancé and I went here for my birthday last year. Obviously it's going to be chilly in February, but there were still outside exhibits and it was still so much fun! We had a great time seeing the beluga whale. I bought a small snow globe of the whale because that was my favorite exhibit. Such a great time!!

Was a bit taken back by what I thought was an extremely high cost of admission. The place is amazing, though. Well laid out, great presentations. Price was a tough pill to swallow though, especially if coming with a family.

My family visited this aquarium and we absolutely loved it. Don't go in expecting a large aquarium like Atlanta or even the New England aquarium though or you will be disappointed. I personally loved the size and the exhibits. The outdoor beluga whale exhibit is phenomenal, and the whales really get a chance to display their wonderful personalities! The prices... More
