My husband and I visited this aquarium yesterday. We were happy to find such a neat Attraction that didn't break the bank! I have been to many aquariums in the country. Although this one is smaller, it is one of my favorite! There were so many exhibited creatures that I had never seen before! Will definitely go back with the... More

We didn't get to see the aquarium. We got there at 10 o'clock when they were to open and waited around until about 1015. Called them and they said oh will be open around 10 or 15 minutes . We didn't want to wait any longer as we had an itinerary

It was cheap and nice and small but took 30 minutes to walk through. Wish someone would donate to these folks. They really are trying to keep it up but need help to do so. This would be a great thing for hot springs if they could make it more by pitching in to help these sweet people.

It is not very big but has quite a few different fish. Has some fish that you would find in the local area. I found it had a lot of interesting information about what they do have and how they received them. I love "Slow Poke"! She is the turtle that wanders around loose. She is very friendly and quite...

This is a very good attraction for both adults and children. The price is very reasonable and it is a great science lesson.

After going to the impressive National Park, we wanted to continue our AR adventures at the other National Park attractions. Immediately upon entering the "National" Park Aquarium we felt as though we had been deceived by the name, since it was obviously not an actual National Park facility. Regardless, we found the critters interesting enough and it was nice to... More

Although it was reasonably priced to enter and they have cute reptiles and fish, we were slightly disappointed with the overall experience. It's a lot smaller than expected but was enough to entertain the girls while we waited for our group to be called from the list across the street.

My family of 5 went while we were close to the bathhouses. We paid I believe 31 dollars and some change for 4 as adults as I have older children and a 6 year old. The aquarium is very small and it could use a good cleaning. The tanks most of them seem clean but the rest of the place... More

It's 20 tanks with various fish and reptiles. It is basically a pet shop fish store for $20 for 2 adults and a child (11) it took about 5 min ,if you lingered!
