Great attraction for the family. Really nice animals on display including two hippos. Walking thru the shark tube was very cool for the whole family. Interactive play area for small children on the top floor was great to keep our 2 year old busy. Go in the early afternoon to avoid the crowds and buses that arrive in the morning.... More

My family and I visited Adventure Aquarium on July 29. There were six of us - my wife and I and four young adult children. We last visited the aquarium several years ago. We waited in line for about 15 minutes to buy tickets so I suggest you buy tickets on line and pick them up at the Will Call... More

We visited on a Wednesday in early July. We did have to wait about 30 minutes to purchase tickets (our fault for not purchasing them online). By the time we got in there it was nearing lunch time. We visited the shark tunnel which was very nice (and the only nice thing we encountered during our whole trip). We next... More

This was a fun aquarium. The hippo and shark exhibits were the best. There is large interactive/play room for the kids on the top floor that's a great way for the kids to let out some energy!

Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ is a terrific place to take family for a wonderful visit. Kids and adults will love it. Great hippo exhibit. Amazing shark tunnel. Take some time to walk the river walk for great views of the Ben Franklin Bridge and Philadelphia skyline

Loved this aquarium! Smaller than some aquariums I have visited, but my 10 year old had a blast. He got to pet a small shark and stingray. We also got to walk through a tunnel where the sharks are swimming over your head and around you. You really get an up close look at the sharks, very cool. This attraction... More

It was nice but for the price it could have been better. Seems good for kids. The shark set up that they have is very nice.

I have been to many zoos and aquariums and this one is so nice! There were a lot of campers yet it was still accessible! The hippo exhibit was amazing and you could see the 2 hippos close up from above and below water which is unique. The aquarium's large tank is amazing and can be seen from many views... More

Hottest day of the year, this was a great way to entertain grandchildren ages 1, 2, 5, 8 and 9. Got a discount from our township, great value. Pack your own lunch too!

It's a nice aquarium, probably really exciting for the younger kids. They have a children's garden and a level inside for children's activities. The shark tunnel and touch exhibits were cool. My husband and I went on a Saturday, right at opening and it was crowded. It seemed to get more crowded as the day went on.
