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

We went on Labor Day. If you go after 2:00 they are offering a discount. They say it's on-line only but it is confusing on-line. Maybe you are better at it then I am. They have an exhibit for children six and under. The shark exhibit is great. When you go through the shark tunnel and they swim over you... More

Unless you get a coupon deal it is expensive for the time it takes to view it. We finished in 2-3 hours including stopping to eat and doing the movie.It has some nice exhibits. I would like to see more signs that tell about the animals. The big shark tank is awesome and the tunnel is great. But the place... More

If you are looking for a great place to spend the day with your family, then Adventure Aquarium should make your list. It is fun, and you can learn a lot. Touch-a-shark and the sting ray pool are a must. And spending time in the shark tunnel is another. The area was clean, and parking was very convenient. The key... More

I recently brought the children I babysit to visit the Aquarium. I had been there before, always when it wasn't so crowded. This time we went on a rainy Saturday, which was not the best time to go. The line to buy tickets was very long (and I noticed it was much, much longer when we were leaving), so you... More
