Downtown Aquarium Reviews
If you love fish (watching and eating), this is the place. A unique themed setting with an “underwater” ambience. The aquariums are spectacular, and the mermaid shows are fun. Every seat has a good vi... more »

I came here from Wichita Ks to visit my boyfriend for the weekend. He took me here on an early Saturday and we enjoyed our time together here at the Aquarium. I didn’t have any expectations. But we sat in the bar area by the window where the aquarium was and had a waiter make us both a couple of really good alcoholic beverages and bring out some appetizers. It was relaxing. We got to see some cool fish , and little aquariums. The mermaids were kinda cool to watch. I thinks it’s a good place to bring kids to.
The aquarium looked bigger from outside than it actually was. It was a well maintained place and was fun. You will spend about an hour and a half tops from start to finish. On Saturday's I Can Only Imagine how busy this place gets. We stood in line for about 40 minutes to get tickets to go inside on Friday @10:30am. There are more attractions in the same aquarium like 4D movies and scuba diving which we did not purchase Of course all these extras cost more. Would recommend to anyone with a short amount of time or want to do something quick and easy for the day.
