Being from the Chicago area, I'm used to our Shedd Aquarium, where everything is inside. So, I was in for a bit of a surprise at this aquarium --- and that there were so many areas outdoors. It was really great -- the exhibits are beautifully done, and it's so cool to be able to get really up-close with the animals. It's also really nice that there are docents around, giving information about the animals. Very cool!
