  • The staff here are super knowledgeable and friendly to kids. They have lots of displays and touch tanks as well as models and interactive stations. They offered reptiles of a wide variety to see and interact with. The facility is intimate in size but that allows much closer interaction with the displays. They also have a small gift shop with shirts, toys, maps, puzzles, and educational books and booklets available.
  • Not even sure what the purpose of this facility is, and I am not trying to be snarky at all! The interior is very similar to a store for aquarium supplies, and it is difficult from the outside of the building to find the entrance. There is a very cool whale sculpture on the immediate grounds, but we feel our time was better spent at the turtle rehab center down the road.
