I took my teenage daughter to the aquarium. We couldn't get there on a weekday so I knew it would be busy on a Saturday. And it was. It took a lot of time to find a parking spot and a minute to figure out where the front door was. The displays were very nice if not as polished as other displays we've seen. It didn't take very long to go through the whole thing but there was a place to eat and a gift shop. If your kids have never been to SeaWorld or one of the big aquariums, or if they are really small and wouldn't remember, then this is great for them. If they have been, well, this is kind of a let-down. It cost us about $40 to get in. And I didn't expect to see a big place like SeaWorld and I know they need the money to sustain themselves, we just ended up not being there very long so I thought it was a little overpriced.

This isn't a huge aquarium like you'd find in Chicago, but it has all the things children go to an aquarium to see. I actually like that it's a little bit smaller. My five-year-old grandson has a family membership at Loveland, and because it's small and he goes there often, he knows where everything is and how to get there. Rather than making him follow some set itinerary, I let him lead me to his favorite places.The staff were all very friendly and helpful - giving us insightful information as we paused at various exhibits.

We ate a snack at the cafe. The cookies are adorable and delicious, and an order french fries is big enough to share.

All in all it was a great way to spend the afternoon!

Went with my wife today. It was interesting, but not as impressive as I was hoping for.
The shark exhibit is cool, but overall not a venue I would visit often.

This was a place of great fun for kids of all ages! They offer different feeding times for different areas and there is always a staff member close by to answer questions. They also offer a variety of fun movies that are full of education.
