In the Lobby entrance to the Silverton & Bass Pro Shops. A great FREE attraction worth visiting... This 117,000-gallon aquarium is home to hundreds of exotic fish, including sharks and stingrays. Is open to view 24-hrs a day. There are comfortable seats around the Aquarium to relax in or you could enjoy a drink at the mermaid Bar right next... More

What a great free attraction in Las Vegas. It's a huge aquarium with lots of fish. They have benches that you can sit on and watch the fish feedings and/or the mermaid swimming. Check their web site or call the hotel for daily show times. The mermaid is fun to watch, waves to everyone and will even take selfies through... More

Located approximately 6 miles off the strip is the Silverton hotel. Inside of it, is a very large aquarium with all types of fish and stingrays. The fish are very colorful and at some point they're supposed to be a mermaid that goes in. She may be on vacation during the week of Christmas because we have not seen her.... More

Sat around for an hour during the published times and not a thing. No front desk of any sorts to ask about it. No sign saying cancelled. So the best advertised free attraction is a big bust. Maybe Silverton could reimburse my fuel costs. I can see the fish in any aquarium.

Big tank full of fish. The odd time you'll even see a mermaid. Nice addition to the Bass Pro Shops aquariums.

We actually watched this aquarium being built on the TV show Tanked. It is attached to The Silverton Casino and Bass Pro Shop............Not really a lot to say about the aquarium except there were many species of fish and it was quite big, pretty and clean to look at. We actually had more fun in the Bass Pro Shop itself... More

The Silverton has one of the best aquariums because it is so tall and so accessible. I wouldn't categorize this as a "must see or do" in Vegas. However, if you are nearby, find a reason to grab a drink at the nearby bar and enjoy the view. Although there is a bar attached on one side, it is very... More

The fish tank is impressive and the fish simply beautiful and peaceful. Not sure the men in our group could even remember if they saw a fish because they had a mermaid swimming through the tank in a truly gorgeous costume. She interacts with the crowd and the fish alike and she is quite good and entertaining. The women still... More

We stopped just to see the aquarium. and were a little disappointed. It is somewhat small but still had a good variety of fish.

It was nice and informative when diver was in Tank hand feeding fish and sharks! The kids around us Loved the mermaids that swim throughout the day. Nice if your at Casino, Hotel or Bass pro store, but wouldn't make a special trip out there for it. But if you like to gamble with the Locals or eat a nice... More
