Long Island Aquarium reviews
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!
