We took our grandkids there on a summer day that was extremely hot and threatening thunderstorms. Perfect thing to do on a day like that. Hate that area of Cleveland and would never have even considered going there with just the kids. Husband had a day off work and he knows his way around that area. Way out of my... More

We took our grandson to the aquarium. All of the exhibits were beautiful. However, there were a few accessibility issues. Walking for long periods without a break is very difficult for me. There were not enough places to take a seated break. It would be nice to sit down within easy view of the tanks. The stingray exhibit was the... More

Overall, not satisfied. I feel the price is way to high. I think we spent 1 - 1 1/2 hrs and left. Your better off going to the zoo instead. I was hoping for a better experience.

The location is a bit rough to get to, but the building is nice. The actual aquarium, though, wasn't really worth the price of admission: Adults (13+): $19.95, Children (2-12): $13.95, Seniors (60+): $17.95. These prices have been reduced since the original opening, when an adult ticket cost $25. Most displays are little more than you could find in a... More

You call THIS an aquarium? I call it Pet Smart! This isn't a REAL aquarium -- I've been to those --this place is a wanna-be and an embarrassment to the city. Also, the amount they charge for admission is highway robbery. The best thing that could happen would be to shut it down and start over. This time, use people... More

It took me a while to decide to actually go here as all I heard were complains about the price & how small it was. Except coming from a city with no attractions this place is great. I am 31 years old and loved it. All the exhibits are super easy for all children to see and be up close... More

With our 3 kids the cost to enter was $93 - which incl. 3 passes to feed the rays - and although it was nice it only took us barely 90 min to go through the entire place. The ray feeding was the highlight but could not help soften the blow of how much it cost.

This is a nice small aquarium. One of the first exhibits when you walk in is an open tank with a turtle in it. The turtle swims right up to the glass and then lifts it's head out of the water, such an up close look! There is a tortoise that is pretty friendly, one of the employees let my... More

Went with family during the week. No crowds....a bit pricey tho. However, aquatic displays were beautiful and pristine. Fed stingrays by hand.....my 9 yr old loved it.....but not as much as his grandma! Lol Fun for all ages! Shark tunnel was unbelievable! Staff was extremely friendly and informative.

Priced just slightly on the high side. $43.85 and that was with 10 dollars off. Had my daughter been 2 she would have been free but it only took us an hour and a half to go through. We thought 43.85 was just to much for 3 people one being under 5.
