“Niagara Falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

A little hard to find but wait the trouble. Inexpensive Aquarium considering it is located in a tourist spot. Lady in giftshop/ticket taker had no clue where certain fish were located in museum. Seal show was well done for a small Aquarium.

“Lovely aquarium!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

My husband and I visited and we quite enjoyed ourselves there. I loved looking at all the creatures. I took some pretty cool photos with my flash off. Just wished the octopus wasn't afraid of bright lights so we could see him better! :)

“sea lion performance awesome, lovely souvenirs at reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

this is one of the stops on the scenic trolley and is a must do... though the aquarium is small, it has quite a good variety of exhibits... even huge amazonic fish which owners have surrendered due to lack of space to keep in their houses... the sealion performance is awesome ... three sealions demonstrate several tricks with 2 trainers... we stayed on after the performance when the trainers continued to practise and it was really great

“Not so much to see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

This is a very small antiquated aquarium. Not worth visiting. The city itself is not noteworthy either.

“Disapointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Really had little to see and the exibits were dark and dreary. The staff were so busy gabbing they didn't even bother with the standard greeting's to us. Just took the tickets and kept on talking to each other.
