We stopped here to stretch our legs, and it's a nice little aquarium! Maybe a little pricey for what it is, but it was still nice.

They did a good job with this space. I've been to larger aquariums , but for this area it's a good size.

No complaints for a small aquarium besides the price. Clean, comfortable, plenty of mall parking. Not crowded. Good flow throughout the journey. Petting the rays as they splashed by in their low edge tank was the best. My 8 year old son was still excited...More

As most who have written reviews, we didn't know what to expect from this new aquarium, but were pleasantly surprised. Once you're inside the actual venue, it's very well put together. Then entrance is kinda small and unremarkable followed by a very long hallway that...More

I wasn't sure what to expect from a smaller aquarium, but I was not disappointed! There were many different species of marine animals and a nice set up to see everything. My favorite area is the stingrays. They have added some new stingrays and the...More

We finally found the time to visit this place called Via Aquarium, and so glad we did. Someone truly engineered a wonderful experience, with a wide range of fish covering most of the worldwide regions. The signage at each tank does a great job explaining...More

This facility is quite new and a little hard to find (signage is not the best), but my husband and I were impressed. This is no Boston, Atlanta or Monterrey aquarium by any means, but there is plenty to see of both fresh water and...More
