Over all a very nice aquarium, it could've used a little more lighting, in some places it was kind of dark. Great place to take kids, but it was pretty noisy. The shark exhibit was good, but the thing I thought was unique was the...More

This aquarium is very unique and different than most. They have a large tank with a tunnel going through which presents some up close views of rays, eels and sharks. They also have a cool flash flood simulator that the kids love. One of the...More

I thought it was overpriced for what they had there...I would say we were out of there in under two hours. There really isn’t that much to see...I was disappointed.

Beautiful Aquarium which is open until 9pm in the city. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and calm with underwater background sounds and the fish swimming by as you dine. Visiting from Florida, I was impressed with the variety of marine life displayed.

The best deal here is a year membership, especially if you like to sit in a particular room/area and watch the sharks cruise by. Very calming experience, even the thunderstorm room is fun. The restaurant is pricey as well, and I wasn't impressed with food...More
