  • Great place for adults and kids. A great place to spend a few hours with many different exhibits, and of course the amazing shark tank. The restaurant is the cherry on top with good food and a great view. Convenient parking lot just nearby.
  • Very enjoyable experience with a great variety of fish on display. Best aquarium I have been to. The food in the restaurant is brilliant also.
