I live in Tampa & hadn't been in forever so I went one Monday in September. It was OK as I've definitely been to much better acquariums in other cities. It has the usual sea life & even a Florida specific area which was nice. It is also pretty small. However, if i were a kid, I think I would have loved it. All of the fun waterpark type of items they have outside for kids to play with would make it worth my time (if I had kids).
So, adults only -- don't waste your time. Save your $22 or so. Adults with kids -- definitely go.
There is plenty of parking nearby (not too expensive) and Channelside is right next door if you'd like to stroll around the area or grab a bite for lunch.
