Its expensive but worth the money, lots of fish I had never seen at other aquariums. Loved the butterfly walk. Lots of walking required but you can take your time. We went as 2 adults and enjoyed it as much as the kids there seemed...More

Two buildings with multiple displays. The priced seemed a little steep at $30 per person for the size. It is a nice little setup though.

I had not been to this aquarium since I was a kid, my husband had never been. We really enjoyed it even though it was quite crowded and slightly cramped. The exhibits were nice and the views were beautiful.

This is a unique aquarium and well worth a visit. This was our third time over the last 10 years and it keeps creating new items and displays. We go to a lot of aquariums but the way they have organized the way you go...More

The butterfly exhibit is really nice! Butterflies abound and land directly on visitors.
