For being a smaller aquarium it did have a good diversity of animals. However being smaller some of the larger animals did not have much space and looked miserable. It was relatively clean in general. It did have decent ticket prices. It is good for...More

Although we arrived late in the afternoon, we still enjoyed our time at the aquarium. Our favorite was the sting rays and the jelly fish exhibits. Even in winter, the seals and walruses were active and entertaining.

We took the kids to the aquarium on a recent family trip. We loved it as much as the kids did. The highlight was touching the sting rays. My son is still talking about it!
