Every time we visit the Outer Banks, we always go to the aquarium. All displays are created professionally with informative explanations. While some exhibits have remained the same over the years, some change and are always of interest. There are numerous hands-on activities and educational programs during which children [and adults] can learn many facts about the different animals native to the environment here. We find this a must to see, and will continue to return.

We went there a few years ago while on our honeymoon. We were pleasantly surprised by the short lines and the variety of displays.

Not bad; well maintained, educational exhibits. Lots of fish in nice glass underwater displays. Good for families with kids. Teaches ways to care for sea creatures.

I highly recommend the aquarium. It is a very nice facility, the staff are helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely worth the admission price. The staff go out of their way to insure you have a good visit.
