Our family thoroughly enjoyed the Pearl Harbor display. But the highlight for our kids was the talking steps. You have to try them out.

It was alright, a little on the small side, especially for the price. If you have some time to kill you might consider visiting.

We visit the aquarium every December as part of our trip to Myrtle Beach. Our daughter loves all the fish and loves the moving sidewalk. We were excited to learn that they are expanding and adding penguins! Can't wait for next December.

It was fun. Everyone like touching the jellyfish. We was able to take a family photo as we entered that was available to purchase shortly afterwards. We also loved going around and watching the fish above and around us.

I have enjoyed visiting many times over the years. I like the different exhibits that change but also enjoy the ones that don't. This weekend I got to experience the aquarium through the eyes of my young niece and it was especially magical. She and...More

Under water tunnels are awesome. Can be a little intimidating for young people so be careful. Lot's of living things you can pet an touch. Worth every penny.

I don't think you will need snacks. I sure you could take bottled water. It doesn't take that long.
