Small and nice overall. The jellyfish displays are impressive. The habitats provided to the mammals and the turtles were less impressive. This was a nice way to spend a few hours, it isn’t a full day outing by any stretch. It is a good value...More

Small aquarium with jellyfishes being its main attraction. It's well kept, clean and enjoyable. Kids will have a fun time. There is also a sea lion show and some tanks with marine mammals.
