We took our 4 kids to the aquarium, and it did not disappoint! All 4 of my kids, ages 2-11 LOVED it! (Us parents loved it too!) There was so much to do, from seeing baby penguins, touching rays, watching an interactive movie, walking across a rope bridge, walking under sharks, seeing beautiful birds, it was a blast! Would definitely... More

This was a treat for all of us. The admission was reasonable at $15.00/person and the aquarium was great! We happened to be there when they had their shark exhibit, which was fascinating. We walked through a glass tubular container where the sharks swam around us!

Nice venue to bring the younger kids to during the summer heat & winter cold but disappointing for my teens who have been to Sea World.

Visited the aquarium with my near-teen daughter (aka the Ratling). There are three or four independent areas each with their own theme (e. g., Utah, Ocean Explorer, South America, etc.) and each one is very nice. Clearly arranged, accessible, well-presented, educational and fun to see. Really good for all ages. I think there is something here for everyone to enjoy.... More

We have been going to this aquarium since it was itty bitty. It is now in it's final home and we could not be happier! My kids love it and know the penguins by name, they love the touch tanks and being able to sit to watch the sharks. The cafe has good food at a reasonable price and we... More

We arrived early as we read on TripAdvisor that it becomes crowded later in the day. The baby penguins and sea otters are darling. Loved the gorgeous salt water aquariums and friendly staff willing to help point out camouflaged critters.

Nice smaller aquarium just outside of the city. It was a busy place on Saturday, but still lots of room to see the attractions. Look around though, as there is a lot of stuff hidden in the corners.

As we travelled to Salt Lake from Idaho- we saw several billboards announcing the baby penguins at the Aquarium. We decided that we had to see them! It was great to see the video of the eggs hatching & we did get a nice picture of one of the chicks with it's parents out in the exhibit! The entire setup... More

This time, we visited late afternoon on a Saturday and there was a long line just to get in the place. The place was packed and busy. It was difficult to enjoy the exhibits because of the crowds. The sharks are our favorites. We visited once and went first thing when they opened and that seemed to be a better... More
