We have been visiting this aquarium for the past 2 years now and we bought the annual pass which is the best deal. Aquarium can be seen 2 -3 hours and also kids enjoy the shark tank and sting ray tank where you are allowed to touch them. Would have them 5 star if they had some vegan options in... More

We took our 17 month old grandson for the first time. We got there when it opened and had no wait. It wasn't too crowded for a Saturday and we were able to see all of the attractions with no trouble. We will definitely bring him back again!

My family loves to visit aquariums: big, small, and everything in between. This is one of our favorites. Where else can you see hippos swimming, pet sharks and rays, and go through the shark tunnel? On top of all of that, we also found the food in the cafeteria to be pretty tasty. Our family has been here twice even... More

This aquarium was very clean, uncrowded the day I went (midweek, midday) and had a very nice collection of animals to view. Great view of Philadelphia across the Delaware river from the food court area and out front of the aquarium. I didn't have to stand in line, but I can tell on busy days the line outside could be...

This is a great place for the young and old. They offer opportunities to touch certain marine life, they offer a "Kids Zone" and, my favorite, the 5 million gallon shark tank which you are able to walk through and see a variety of shark species as well as other fish. Adventure Aquarium has penguins, hippos, Wear comfortable shoes because... More

We absolutely loved it! We traveled from portland, OR and it was by far the best aquarium my boyfriend and I have been to, and we've been to plenty of them! The hippos were awesome, the displays and set ups were very elaborate, and they had the biggest sharks I've seen in an aquarium. The parking was easy and a... More

The aquarium is nice but I don't think it is worth the cost of full price admission. This could be because we brought our two year old so we weren't able to go slowly. The exhibits are nice. Our daughter had a lot of fun at the children's area. She loved getting to interact with the stingrays and sharks. I... More
