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!

Ok, small, unclean, pamphlet over rate the facility, have seen much better in smaller towns. If you need to get in out of the heat, ok if you have small kids, otherwise pass.

We noticed the sign while walking the loop of bathhouse row, we had not planned to go. We thought we would give it a try with our little one in tow. She really enjoyed looking at all the fish and reptiles. I think that adults many not think much of it, however if you have children they would think it's... More

While walking through bathhouse row we noticed the sign. Since we had our two year old niece we diced to stop in. She really enjoyed it, so it's an ok stop for small kids. I think it's a bit overpriced for adults - it's one large, dark room of tanks. Fish, reptiles, and a giant tortoise (which was neat). Definitely... More

Took kids here who seemed to enjoy the aquarium, but if you have ever been to a big one in a major city, this will seem like a 1st grade field trip.

Hello, I spent maybe half an hour tops at this aquarium, but it is right on the main drag, the size is reflected in the small/fair price of admission, and after travelling all 50 states for various sightseeing activities, I have to say that I did see a few creatures here that were new to me. The woman who rang... More
