They have hippos now, which is awesome. Penguins, jellyfish, stingrays, sharks. A show where divers swim with the sea life. We are in our late 20s and felt like kids. Take advantage of opportunities to pet sharks and pet and feed stingrays. Kids and adults love this place. Always a worthwhile trip.

I always love going to Adventure Aquarium. Several years ago my family had membership passes and would go at least once every month or two. Life got in the way and we couldn't renew the passes, so we didn't go the last several years. This past weekend though, my boyfriend and I decided to go on a whim and it... More

We spent about 2.5 hours exploring the aquarium including lunch break. It wasn't crowded on a weekend. There is a good amount of exhibits, but not overwhelming, you see enough and don't get tired. Shark tunnel is spectacular - very up close and ominous experience. All the tanks where you can touch the creatures are very clean. There is a... More

This aquarium was a blast, I took my 2 year old son and he loved it. The location is beautiful, with a great view of Philadelphia from across the water. The bathrooms and aquarium were very clean, all areas where touching the animals is allowed have sanitizer on the walls and bathrooms near by. The tanks were also very beautiful... More

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!

We bought our tickets ahead of time and added the lunch. I must say, the food was really good! Although we were evacuated due to a fire drill, we really enjoyed the aquarium. Our boys, ages 18 months and 7 had an absolute blast. The older one loved touching the sharks. The aquarium is quite small, so perfect for younger... More

We had a great time at the Camden Aquarium! The only thing I would recommend is buying your tickets ahead of time if you are planning on going on the weekend. The line for tickets was so long I was thinking about not waiting. Then my boyfriend went online with his phone and bought are tickets. Went right in!

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
