We get season tickets to the BioPark. That covers the Zoo, Aquarium, botanical garden, and Tingley beach. It's a great value.

I never been in other aquarium, so it was a very nice experience. The jellyfish is soooo nice! But the place is quite small, I was expecting more.

Smaller children may like it better than teens. The shark tank was good and the feeding at the coral reef was interesting. I would only do it in conjunction with the botanical garden which was very well done.

ok for young kids but teens will move through it fast till the end at the shark tank. we waited for feeding at 2 but all they did was feed the rays and turtles. place was really full of younger kids. but hey the ticket includes the biological park too. Bring lots water, you will be walking a few miles.

It didn't take us long to get through, but the kids really enjoyed it. I guess I was expecting a bit more, but I think that may have been because I have been to better aquariums before.

I do not think this aquarium was worth the $12 admission I paid, although if you are from Albuquerque, you only pay $9 (still not worth it). There were a lot of people there, so, trying to see the fish, you are blocked by children. There was a really amazing jelly fish area, but, some douche kept flashing his camera... More

We were in town for a wedding and had no kids for the weekend and I felt kinda silly going to an aquarium but so glad we did. It was a nice place to go and get out of the heat. I loved seeing the stingrays!

Its a small Aquarium but its fun for kids, they have a glass tunnel where you can see fishes and and a big pool of sting rays, the glowing jelly fishes and of course the little sharks, overall i would recommend going. Like i said it is a small aquarium but very pretty.
