She enjoyed the diver showing off the crab and sturgeon....but, this place is very dated and extremely musty and moldy down below...we couldn't wait to get out of there The actual aquarium was so so...go to the Newport Aquarium or Hatfield marine center instead.

Only went to the shop and not to the aquarium (more or less) that they have. They also have divers too, so I can not speak about that. Has many items for sale, definately for the tourist market. If you are looking for that, this...More

Been coming here for years. A few years ago it was so dirty you couldn't hardly see through the glass. The musty/mold smell was overpowering. We were going to skip it this time. But it's cheaper to see 3 attractions than two. So we went...More

Traveling with family from out of town. Wish we would have just kept on driving. I am so disappointed that they would keep selling tickets to see the diver, when there was absolutely NO room to see him by the time we got down there....More

This is a wonderful family experience, seeing ocean life up close, and if you arrive at the right time you will get to see a diver showing an octopus and other animals through a window. The only bad part is, you have to go down...More

I would have loved to seen this attraction. I didn't like that you had to buy a ticket that made you see Ripley's and Wax Museum in order to see this attraction. The gift shop was nice and offer alot of things.

I only went because it was part of the package deal with Ripleys and the Wax museum. Waste of time. Just sad. The little portholes you look through are all green and slimy so you can’t see much. It’s cramped and smelly.

Can be visited as part of a package deal with the Wax Works and The Ripley's Believe It or Not. It hasn't changed a bit in the 40 years since my parents first took me there. Small, dark, and needs better lighting, serious modernizing and...More

This place is cramped. The animals are slow and lethargic.... it's basically like they are inprisoned. There is a gift shop with assorted knicks and plastic junk.

You can buy your 3-way pass at any of the three sites. I don’t remember the cost, but you should be able to find it online.
