“hidden treasure”

Atlantic City Aquarium Historic Gardner's Basin
Attraction details
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Gardners Basin section of ac is hidden secret. Those of us that live close by utilize all. A quiet learning adventure. A touch section that kids love. Check feeding time. Gift shop of course. Spotless. After can eat outside at The Flying Cloud restaurant. Enjoy the waterway views. Afterwards hop on a ferry ride around bay to Brigantine. Also a bathing available in this area with facilities and boardwalk which unfortunately damaged from dtorm. Make a long day of it.

we were here with our grandchildren ages 2-7 and everyone had a nice time. Nice "shows" in the tanks, areas the kids could get their hands wet. All in akk nicer that I had expected.

Just an average aquarium with a few fishes, stingrays, and turtles. Nothing great and the place was very small at least for the price of admission..it was definitely not worth it.. If only there were more fishes. Being able to pet the stingrays was a plus but other than that, nothing really special and I don't think we will return even if we had children.

A small aquarium and menagerie, worthy of a visit. On the first floor they have a few tanks of fish, a moray eel, an octopus and a turtle plus more. The second floor has some animals and the top floor is an observation deck with some hardhat diving equipment on display. It's a good place for kids and they were renting out their big room to birthday parties when we were there. It was an enjoyable experience.

We love aquariums, and this one does not compare in size to some we have been to. But it is clean, quaint and educational, and no where near as costly as the big places. This is definitely a place to bring the kids to, it focuses on sea life of the mid-Atlantic. There's a touch tank, and you can go outside on the 3rd floor for an awesome view of the ocean and Gardiner's Basin.
