Strip mall location is a little odd and the 10$ to get in is a little expensive. You can pay more to feed parrots or sharks and rays. I paid to feed the birds, I think an extra 3$. Some of the exhibits are small, but if you take the time to look at them, they're very cool and interesting. I loved the sea horses and shark nursery. Petting the rays and sharks was awesome too. I do agree with hand washing stations and not just hand drying towels hanging from the walls. Lots of colorful fish and lizards. My favorite thing was the puffin birds, Beam the sea turtle and the giant octopus. But I felt his tank was too small for how large he was, so I was sad. The staff at the front desk said to stand by the bird cage place so I could feed them, but I waited along time and no one ever really came by. So I ended up giving my ticket back to her to give to a kid. (Didnt get my money back). This place would be really great for kids! It was a fun hands on experience, everyone should go once.
