We live in Philadelphia, across the river from the fabulous Camden Aquarium, and our friends live in Baltimore which also has a spectacular Aquarium. So our bar is set high and our expectations for this rainy day activity were questionable. I'm a little amused at those who have described this place as pricey. Prices at Adventure Aquarium in Camden are... More

We went at opening time and had the place almost to ourselves. Each section had knowledgeable people ready to answer questions and guide us along. The exhibits were clean and well marked. Our favorite were the sea horses. Beautiful variety of species.

This is a great venue for the whole family... It's also a great place to learn. The walk through on the moving walkway is great for the kids as well as adults. It's also a great rainy day venue.

I had been to the aquarium several years back. However they have added a mermaid attraction where mermaids dive and swim with the fish that was awesome! They have also added a jelly fish attraction with numerous species of jelly fish. This is a great place for adults and children alike. You could spend two hours or all day,your choice.... More

The cost of entry was pretty high, but the upkeep on a place like this must be extreme, so I felt like it was worth it. We really enjoyed he shark walk.
