We had a great time. My two boys (3 & 11) loved it. It isn't real big but is very nice and clean. The shark tunnel was very cool. It will be very nice once they have it finished. The building itself is very interesting as it's an old coal burning power plant. We will be returning.

We really wanted to check this aquarium out after visiting the aquariums in Baltimore, Atlanta and Cincinnati. This one was really a disappointment. The tickets were very pricey and it only took an hour to view everything. And that was with us moving very slowly. Unfortunately this place is really not worth a repeat visit.

I took my son, his wife, and my three grandchildren to the Cleveland Aquarium today. I have been wanting to visit ever since it opened and we were all excited to finally go. It was a 45 minute drive from Akron because of road construction and I don't think we spent more than an hour there viewing the exhibits. We... More

Visited the Aquarium for the first time recently and was a bit shocked by the admission price. It was close to $20.00 for adult ($17.00 for seniors) and around $13 for kids. I understand that this is comparable to other aquariums around the country, but you can easily get through the entire place in one hour. That is a pretty... More

Was shocked at the price for admission. Everything was in the basement of an old restored factory. Chicago, Quebec City and Toronto have aquariums that are at least ten times the size. Making our visit last a hour was pushing it

I attended an adult swim whiskey/bourbon tasting with friends. All I can say is thank goodness there was booze. We paid $30 for an evening with friends and had a blast, this event was well worth the money. However, the booze was worth the money, NOT the aquarium. As I understand it the normal tickets for the aquarium are $25,... More

On a chilly February day, it was wonderful. The displays are easy to get around with information about the fish. It started with local fish. Memories of catching little "sunnies" come to mind. I saw a father & son talk fishing in the lake this summer, delightful! There was a large touch tank where children and adults easily could participate... More

Though I agree with most of the posters about the admission prices ($53 for a family of 4, one of them being free), in my opinion it was well worth it. The first part of the walk-thru is fish from the area, and then they go thru different areas such as tropical reef fish, etc. They have an awesome sting... More

Pleasant surprise! This aquarium is clean, and designed in such a way that the exhibits flow into each other. Staff friendly and helpful, able to answer all my questions and were enthusiastic. Favorites were the Coral reef, the Tropical Fish Displays, the Coastal displays, the Turtle rescue exhibit and the SHARK TUBE. Shark Tube will take your breath away. Yep,... More
