To see the animals in that kind of setting was wonderful, they seem so peaceful. You can stand in one area and see so much.

Took the kiddos to sea some fishes. We all had great time. In addition to keeping children occupied for hours, not an easy feat let me tell you, the exhibits kept me entertained as well. Fantastic family activity all the way around.

I don't like this place as much since the remodel. feels like you are climbing and without the automatic walkway it's not so good for seniors.

This aquarium has gotten better with the new exhibits. The "hands on" experience is fantastic and gives a greater appreciation to all ages of the life in our seas. Great place to spend some time while shopping.

Super crowded roadside quality attraction jammed into the mall. About $26 to walk thru this thing , if you drag your feet , takes about 30 minutes, not counting the gift shop ending. Walking through the overhead tank part sure.., nice but way overpriced.

This was an enjoyable experience. It is amazing that this could be part of a mall. There are fun things to see and everything is clean and well kept. Good idea to bring kids when they are rested and in a good mood.

It seems a little pricey, but when you consider what has to go on behind the scenes it makes it reasonable. People of all ages really enjoy the many different exhibits and the interactive options. They have just added a new exhibit too.

We went here as part of an overnight trip to the MOA. The shopping is great, but sometimes you need a break, the aquarium is a nice place to take that break. This is a nice aquarium even if you're not at MOA to shop.
