It is a small aquarium but still worth the visit. A nice place to spend a rainy afternoon. A good variety of things to see.

Have visited much better aquariums. This one was poorly lit and quite small...suprisingly poor quality for being in a city by the waterfront! The tour guide seemed nice and good with the kids.

Maybe the 'oldness' of the place is part of the charm?? This is fun to do if it's raining. It isn't a place to get out of the heat. No AC. Signage inside at exhibits are faded and some you can't even read. But they...More
