Go. Be a kid. Take a kid. Easy to have a wonderful time. Opportunities for kids to actually touch some of the swimming creatures!

Great exhibits. It was lots of fun to watch the seals being fed and educational too. Good IMAX theater.

“Trip to the Aquarium”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Great, informative very pleasant - but on the day we visited it was really very busy. MIght be better to have staggered entrance tickets so that people can get a chance to see everything.

“A Great Place to Take Kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Our son has a membership and regularly takes our 7 and 3 year old grandsons, who love the place. We sometimes take them to the IMAX theatre, located in the same building. There's always something new to see.

“Great Place for kids.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

My son loves going there. They have hands on experiences such as touching the sting ray, etc. It is worth it to buy a membership if you go there more than couple times a year and have more than one person at a time.
