  • This is worth a trip, it is not the largest aquarium we have been to but it is really nice, well organized and well run.

  • Went on Mother's day which is you have a paid child than mom's go for free. Even though my son could have gotten in for free since he's under 2 it was worth paying for him instead of an adult ticket. They gave an otter presentation which I really enjoyed. The butterfly garden was also my favorite. Great fun place for anyone who is an animal lover! Highly recommend
  • My favorite aquarium on the East Coast! That’s my second time in this aquarium and nothing changed still beautiful! The Atlantis theme awesome Poseidon the Greek God unbelievable as a idea love every second there with my family! Picture with the Penguin and the sea lion show amazing experience! Butterfly garden breathtaking with the music . Snorkeling I’m sure unforgettable for the kids . Tickets for adult $42, parking 2 blocks away $12 for the day (not include for the tickets also if you wanna do the snorkeling it’s extra $39 picture with animals extra $22 (food kids eat inside the aquarium) fresh, drinks have free refills soda slushes too. Opening hours not so late weekdays 10-4 weekend till 5 if you wanna enjoy all adventures better to start there earlier. I know it’s cost a lot together but once in the whole worth the trip!
