I thought the price was high especially considering there hadn't been any additions or improvements since we had visited 10 yrs. ago. There are many exhibits and great signage. The kids really enjoyed feeding the turtles and the stingrays but I was disappointed that it was an additional charge for that activity. I wish the view of the Arkansas River was better since it is built right on the river. I have heard that the private tours are really good but they only do them once or twice a week.
