Reviewed November 2, 2013

Since we had the Discovery Pass and our hotel was a couple of blocks away we decided to try the aquarium. It was a pleasant time. We met a very friendly penguin which seemed to be attracted by our daughter; everytime she stepped in front of the glass the penguin got close and followed her movements. We didn't know about the show of the sea lions, so we were lucky to have arrived five minutes prior to the show. It was amazing to see those animals interacting with humans like dogs do. Actually, it is a small place with a few exhibits but it's worth the visit.

We enjoyed this aquarium. The dolphin show was great. It is clean and has a nice gift shop. The aquarium is not very big, but still worth seeing.

We enjoyed a quick visit because it was included with our Niagara Falls State Park Discovery Pass. It has a few interesting exhibits and we were able to see the Sea Lion show which was great fun. We probably would not have visited if it was not included in the Discovery Pass.

We went to the aquarium because we got admission with our discovery pass. It isn't in the state park but it's very close. It's obvious this place cares a great deal for their animals. While it is small it was interesting and filled with a lot of cool animals. The seals they had all had they're own back stories about how they had been rescued which I thought was awesome. They also have seal feedings for a small fee. I'd pay to come here again.

we went there just because we had bought a discover pass. I loved a few displays(amazon underwater/fishes from the past) in the aquarium and the seal show, otherwise this is a small boring place. It smells awfully inside and i'm not sure why it is so. If you are planning to walk from the maid of the mist to the aquarium please be sure you want to do it. As it might disappoint you after a long walk. If you still want to do it take the tram.
