Nothing special, just a BIG aquarium with all of the standard fish but the mermaids were a fun addition and were Very attentive to our little ones who loved the who experience while we picked up some camping supplies. The best past = IT'S FREE!!!

This is an amazing aquarium that you can sit and watch for hours. Some very exotic fish you don't see at most aquariums are in there as well. Gorgeous setup!

The aquarium at the Silverton, next to the Bass Shop is a very nice attraction. Great for kids to just sit around and watch. Sharks..Rays. And maybe 100 other kinds of salt water fish. Very nice!

The aquarium is very pretty and nicely kept. We love to watch the fish glide around - it's a much needed peaceful counterpoint to the perpetual craziness that is Vegas. This will refresh your spirit and rest your feet.

Nice aquarium with good mix of fish. Can sit in bar and watch fish. They have mermaid shows and informative fish feeding presentations. Check your times because mermaid shows are not every day. BassPro is right next door so easy to shop for gear & look at boats as well. Nice way to pass an hour or two for free.

Took the kids to see the mermaids in the aquarium. They loved it. We also got to walk around the Bass Pro Shop which was also fun for them. They got to sit in boats and ATVs. There's more fish to see in the Bass shop. There's also games. Good way to kill time with the kids and get out... More

Great if you have a car in Vegas and even better if you have kids. Don't spend the cab/Uber fare on it if you don't. Make sure to check Silverton's website for feeding times and mermaid shows.

Tons of fish & it kept the kids busy for awhile. It's a great free activity & right next to Bass Pro which has many more sites for the kids. They also do fish feedings and a mermaid show.

We really liked going and seeing the mermaids swimming here at the Silverton Aquarium. The mermaids interact really well with little kids. They blew bubble kisses at them, bubble rings, and bubble hearts. The interacted with and peted the sting rays and the fishes. The only thing I didn't like was that the mermaid had a tattoo of a mermaid... More
