  • This was my 2nd time going here. First time with friends, 2nd time I brought my two daughters. They enjoyed it. Cool to see the sharks, stingrays and other fish. A must see for the kids.  more »
  • The Aquarium is more than worth the money you pay. This is the only attraction in the entire city we actually enjoyed on our 8 day trip. The huge lizard, the pihrana fishes, the jellyfish, and sharks....  more »
  • Little pricy but the kids really enjoyed it. Was a good family activity away from gambling & smoke. We were there for over an hour.
  • Very fun and awesome to see all the sharks and fish! Would love to go back after everything is opened.
