If you have been to other aquariums, this one might be a disappointment. Nice displays, but quite small and limited in scope. Overrun with school groups the day we visited - very noisy. Rather confusing layout. Eat before or after visiting as food costs are...More

All in all, a good aquarium. Here are some items I wish I knew. The new shark bridge is very sturdy and well constructed. You’re walking between a “V” of thick webbed roping, with a narrow-by-width (but thick) plank-like layer under you. There is no...More

Camden Adventure Aquarium is awesome! An amazing array of aquatic wildlife is waiting right in downtown Camden, and despite the relatively expensive price tag, it’s worth the trip. You won’t find a better aquarium anywhere on the East Coast outside of Baltimore!

You child is free, I purchased my ticket online. I would do the same to avoid the lines or if they are sold out, this way you are guaranteed entry.
