We enjoy visiting this aquarium when we come to town from NY. Bring our grandchildren who live in OK. However the prices have increased a lot recently and not sure it is worth it. The shark tank is awesome, full of bull sharks up close, can sit on the bench and watch or walk behind the tank and feel like... More

We went the Monday after thanksgiving, and had the place to ourselves. Loved the walk thru shark tank. You can get very close to the exhibits. This is not in the same league with the Monterey Bay or Steinhart Aquariums, but very nice being 1000 miles away from the nearest saltwater. admission was $16 each, I think that was fair

I live over three hours from this establishments. I drove with my two young children as I had friends tell us we just had to go. The touch tanks were a complete let down, the lighting was awful, there weren't many in the parking lot but the building was full and one was not able to move about easily. Simply... More

We have been here twice now and each time we have a blast! The animals are all healthy and interesting. The best part for the kids was to pet the Rays and play with the shrimp. I loved the sharks. I will keep coming here over and over even though it is a 3200 km drive. :)

Husband and I visited on our anniversary. It was a little pricey but pretty cool visit! Really more of a family place though.

My family arrived early to avoid the crowd. Lots of people there but everyone was pleasant. It is unbelievable that an aquarium in the middle of the country has such a vast assortment of sea creatures.

We took our 1 year old. He had a great time. There were not many visitors when we were there. Many activities for kids. The facility is clean and growing. A must see if in the area.

Amazing selection of native and exotic aquatic life, very clean and well maintained. I have been here multiple times and every time I enjoy it just as much as the first time!

I agree that the place seems way overpriced for a not a very big establishment. However, you can make it as long as you want. My first time, I just went right through without really taking my time at each exhibit or reading the information. If you slow down, there is a lot of fun to be had and a... More

The Aquarium is fantastic, BUT: it is very small and very expensive. For small children it can be difficult for them to see in the tanks and they will lose interest quickly. There are some great hands on things for kids, but they are limited and some of them charge extra. The zoo is a much better bet if you're... More
