very small not too many attractions

They have a touch tank, which is cool little sting rays and sand sharks. They also had a monkey cage, which I am not sure why it is in an aquarium

Great Aquarium for kids. Displays are well thought out and appealing. Many varieties of sea life are included

My 7yr old son who is obsessed with sharks talked us into going in (they let our kids in free or we wouldn't have gone for it). They have a few exhibits but nothing worth seeing. The Cape May Zoo nearby is free, has the same exhibits (minus the few sharks) and they seem to be better cared for.

Great spot on the boardwalk at Wildwood! We spent a little over an hour at the aquarium learning about the animals. It's setup like an indoor miniature zoo, with everything from fish, sharks, stingrays and eels to monkeys, alligators, lizards, turtles, and snakes. If you are crunched for time, you can get through the entire thing pretty quickly, but I... More

There are a lot of mixed reviews on the aquarium, so wanted to weigh in.... If you're expecting a major city Aquarium (i.e. Baltimore) this isn't it, but you're also not paying anywhere near those prices in admission. What it is... this is a family friendly, affordable, boardwalk attraction aquarium. The facility is on the smaller side but there are... More

Dirty and depressing. The odor was overwhelming, and I felt sorry for the animals.in my opinion only, the animals did not look healthy. It was a dingy and not a great place for a family

Not sure it meets the definition of an aquarium per se. More like a dirty pet shop. Pluses: feed and pet small stingrays (stingers have been removed) and small shark. A handful of other tanks, small caged monkeys and two or three small gators. Minuses: all glass displays are filthy and equipment looks outdated. Tiny place actually, for the price... More

One of the few places that is wheelchair accessible on the boardwalk. This place is well worth checking out. Friendly knowledgable staff and not rushed through at all. The whole family couldn't wait to see what was next and what they could feed. Clean and the animals are well kept. A++

This place is good if it's a rainy day. I thought there would be more but it was okay. The kids seemed to enjoy it.
