We walked about a mile from hotel on our way to Riverwalk. We wound up right by the Aquarium and decided to visit. Wonderful planning? The aquarium was impressive, one of the very best we had visited. The unique experience of salt water habitat and then freshwater in separate facility was the uniqueness that made this a top notch facility.

While on our trip to visit our grandson who is at student at UTC we decided to make a stop at the aquarium there. Was very impressed by their exibits. The aquarium is split into two buildings one featuring fresh water species and the other salt water. It’s laid out so you start at the fourth floor and circle down each floor with different spieces of fish, amphibious and invertebrates. It is very impressive and worth the admission cost.

A very impressive aquarium. Went on a Sunday afternoon. It was somewhat crowded but we were still able to see all the exhibits. The penguins and otters stole the show. They are a must see.

It really is worth the visit, for all ages. I liked being able to see both fresh and salt water animals. Top-notch facility!

The Aquarium was nice but we were a little disappointed. We had been here years ago and remembered things a little differently. They have expanded and added another building, but it seems that they have cut back on some of the exhibits and there are a lot of blank spaces. It was nice though.
