  • Nice place to visit. Not very big building, but it has some interesting things. Price is low so a family tour won't break you. I definitely will visit again when I'm in Hot Springs.
  • We took our boys ages 2 and 5 and they loved the aquarium! Between being amazed over the large tortoise that walks around the aquarium greeting guests and excited to get to watch some of the fish get fed, our boys loved it ! Its also really nice to walk around indoors and enjoy a break from the Hot weather !!!! Go check it out ! If you have a few extra minutes check out their gift shop as well. The prices are very reasonable!
