To me aquariums are usually boring. We went on Christmas Eve and I was pleasantly surprised. It was more than just looking at hundreds of boring fish. We saw them feed the penguins, we fed parrots, saw a 15 ft alligator, giant octopus, and hundreds of other things. We have young kids and there was a lot for them to do and interact with too. The area the aquarium is in is also cool. There are shops, places to eat and a great view of the river. Maybe i enjoyed it so much because it was a holiday and not busy but I would recommend this place.
