“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We brought our 9 month old granddaughter and she enjoyed it as much as the adults. She loved being able to get "next to" the eels and the sharks and could have stayed longer if we let her. The gardens are pretty sparse in the winter, but the dragons in the children's garden are pretty cool!

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This was an unexpected surprise - not up to top standards but very enjoyable, especially for young children, even toddlers. This is a smaller aquarium that goes well with a combined day trip to the zoo and botanical gardens.

“Small, but cool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is a small facility, but very good quality. It is informative and has a wide variety of creatures. We visited a few years ago and then again this trip and enjoyed it very much. Down-side is that you have to pay for the Botanical gardens and aquarium together; it was middle of winter, so not much to see in the botanical gardens. Could have saved a few dollars if they would separate the tickets.

“Great little aquarium!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

If you've got an hour to kill go to this aquarium! I loved that they had local fish endemic to New Mexico, as well as the old favorites like clownfish, moon jellys, moray eels, stingrays, and of course, sharks! The shark tank is fantastic. Will definitely be back!
