Small but my family enjoyed the shows that were provided such as the seal,and sea lion. Price was not too expensive, except for items in the gift shop.

Small & educational. I feel it is WAY over priced. You can walk through and see everything on 60 minutes. If your between the ages of 4-8 years old, then you will love it.

It is a small place, but a good seal show. It is worth it when you buy a pass to do other things also.And the money helps the animals which is a good thing!

It was a very small aquarium, with not much to see. It was not worth the walk to get there from the main part of the park

The Aquarium of Niagara is clean and quaint, however, they really need to find an out of facility storage for the fish food as the smell is a bit overwhelming. The aquarium is a round building with 2 floors. The inside center is a large sea lion tank giving viewers a 360 view from water eye level and above. The... More

This dark, dank, and no fan of a claustrophobic has animals in cages to small, tanks too small, and cannot hold the number of visitors it invites. The sea lion show is depressing with horrible views, no seating, and it makes you want to scream to let those babies free. Same for the penguin. We all felt very sorry for... More

This is really a small aquarium and I would recommend it only if you have bought Niagara discovery pass and not paying $10 separately for this attraction. There are very less species of fish here and may interest only kids below 10. Adults would finish it in less than 30 mins :)

I once spent a summer studying sea life on one of the capes. Based on my experience then, I appreciated the variety of exhibits here. We saw fresh and marine fish from many different locations around the world. It's a nice small aquarium. However, the restrooms were beyond foul! The sanitary napkin disposal bins clearly had not been emptied for... More
