Anessah Barker, 5/5

The glass boat tour was phenomenal. The young woman Alix offered us an engaging an educational presentation about the various sea creatures in the tank. The museum also seems to be offering more opportunities for people to interact with various animals. Although at times, it seems a bit overpriced, there are priceless moments to be had at the aquarium. I recommend everyone see the live mermaid show. I have three boys (7,5,2) and, although it isn’t typically the demographic being targeted, they LOVED it! I was very impressed too! Downright magical!

David Moran, 5/5

What an awesome place to see aquarium life! It was neat to feed the stingrays in the stingray tank. In The touch tank there were also “cleaner shrimp” that would crawl on you and clean your hands! What a neat place!

Rich Grogan, 5/5

Wonderful place to visit. Expect to spend at least 2 to 3 hours here. The exhibits are done well and the interactive touch tanks have improved since we were there a couple years ago. The facility is clean and well maintained. All the staff are friendly and helpful. We used our visit as a home school trip as well and there is great detail posted to help us learn more about the various exhibits. Definitely worth doing.
