Great place to take the kiddos. You can easily spend 2-4 hours inside going through all the exhibits and attractions. There's even a cafe inside if you need to get some food while in there. We have the annual membership and it's totally worth it get the kids out of the house and be in a climate controlled room while it's in the hundreds outside. We've seen new exhibits and attractions every once in a while which is kinda nice when you go frequently. My kids love the tide pools, sharks and penguins.
A great place to visit in Scottsdale. The aquarium is cool-much like most others. But the real neat stuff is when you take advantage of the extra excursions. Plan your trip ahead to make the most of it. My daughter and I had so much fun interacting with penguins during the penguin encounter. My husband and son had a blast during the sea trek in the big tank. We also took the behind the scenes shark tour-which was interesting. It was a great way to celebrate our family’s summer birthdays.
