ABQ BioPark Aquarium Reviews
A nice memorable stroll through the different regions of waters. A very nice modern design with resting/viewing seats along the way. Lots of education and conservation tips along the way. There's a spacious cafe for b4 or after your aquarium walk...AND about half of the seats view the large primary tank! I didn't look to see if "fish" was a menu option. If it's feeding time, the keepers were willing to chat it up.☺
The aquarium was absolutely incredible! So many different fish of all sizes including Seahorses and Stingrays. Tons of turtles and some beautiful sharks. The bug exhibit was so amazing to see as well. How the colonies work together is able to be seen on display across the entire big area.
