We have been to many aquariums all across the country. Because this is a smaller sized aquarium we had the opportunity to feed the fish with the staff. We also found it very interesting to talk to the keepers about the turtles and observe them...More

This aquarium may be small, but if you simply travel around and listen to the short presentations every 15 minutes, you get an amazing experience and learn a lot about the local marine life. The best part was seeing the feedings, helping with the feedings,...More

Pet friendly for leashed well behaved dogs. Needed indoor activities to get away from hot summer sun, this small but very nice aquarium fit the bill. Good for kids too. It would benefit from make-over but it’s a reasonably priced form of entertainment and tickets...More

We went and surprised how small it is. You can see everything in about an hour. Honestly not worth the price.

We wanted to see the aquarium and was surprised how expensive it was and how small. Only two open tanks in the middle and closed tanks surrounded the room. Two turtle spaces outside and one outdoor tank before the exit. They seem to be remodeling...More

Some really pretty fish and turtles, they even have sharks and baby alligators. We really enjoyed the feeding time and the educational talk. Nice way to spend an hour out of the sun and see some really cool fish !

Kristina Pendleton Ed Supervisor at the Key West Aquarium gave us a lot of insight into the shark tank, open pools with amazing fish on exhibit. My grandaughter loved the aquarium and she loves aquariums. Don't miss it.

We enjoyed the attraction, but it's not very large. Kids will especially like seeing the sharks and sea turtles.

We debated whether or not to do this - we've been lucky to have visited some of the top aquariums in the country and weren't sure if this little aquarium would stand up. But we were pleasantly surprised at what a great experience it was!...More
