My husband and I took all four of our boys (ages 8,6,4, and 18 mo) on Presidents Day wknd! We got there early! Even though it was crowded we still got to see everything. The touch pools were great and my youngest loved the Kidzone! The only problem was the eating area. It was SO crowded we ate lunch picnic style on the floor by the windows (great view)! I highly recommend this for families with kids of ALL ages! 8/10

Have been there several times and see something new each time. They certainly continue to pour more money into it to make it better and different. Keep supporting their efforts.

It's a good aquarium. Everyone like sharks, penguins and the blue lobster. There was an area for the smaller children also. There was a place to eat but food was expensive. It was easy to find we got coupons from internet to help with cost but it was a very good day.

Well planned Aquarium. Entire family all ages will enjoy this visit. The displays are so interesting. Sharks and all is fun to feel you are very close to. No great snacks or food but go out for a meal after.

It's a great aquarium with lots to see and lots to do. It's also a great place for little kids to run around indoors in a very large space where it's nice and warm in the winter.
The hippo exhibit is truly amazing..and the sharks are really interesting.
They have a little kid play area that my 4 year old loves..and my 6 month old stares at the tropical fish and smiles.
