This is a fantastic aquarium with so many things to see for the family. My kids enjoyed seeing all of the penguin and other fish. We could sit and watch all of the sharks for hours. A big surprise was the South American exhibit where we saw snakes and birds and even some crocodiles. Another surprise was the Expedition Asia... More

I'm quite grateful that the Loveland family chose to give back to the community by sponsoring this aquarium. It is considerably smaller than Baltimore's National Aquarium, or others of that ilk. However, for a regional place to take a family (and particularly younger kids), it is quite nice.

My nephew asked me for a real life shark, a big one, for Christmas and he kept telling everyone I was going to get it for him.. The aquarium let me adopt there's and have a ceremony and everything for it and made me a hero!

Our family went with our grandson who is 18 months old and he really enjoyed the exhibits. My two favorites were the penguin and otter exhibits. I believe this aquarium is geared more towards children than adults. The exhibits don't give as much information as other aquariums I have visited such as Monterey Bay in CA.

I really like this aquarium and the price is comparable with other aquariums we have visited. I really liked the salt water displays, they were so peaceful to watch and the coral is amazing. I did not eat at the concession, but from what i could see the portions were large. What has impressed me is the customer unique responses... More

We've wanted to visit the aquarium for quite some time now. The exhibits were excellent and informational. Only wish it was a bit more cheaper. Paid about $95 for a family of 6.

If you're like us and skim the signs you can make it through everything in an hour. I never felt rushed but we were not at a leisurely pace mainly because 2 school buses arrived at the same time. It's similar to the Denver aquarium. Cute areas to touch sting rays, bubbles to pop into to see the otters, great... More

They have some fun things, especially for kids and I love the penguins. But you pay the price for a really nice aquarium and this one is small, not worth the price. Spend lots less money and go to the zoo or the natural history museum.
