By far one of the most impressive aquariums in the world! No expense was spared on this attraction. The tanks are incredibly put together, so as to maximize the fish and their environments. There are things to look at everywhere! It's just spectacular! I've been here several times, and if I were a local, I'd get an annual pass. You can see things here you won't see in other aquariums. This is a MUST DO attraction, especially if you have children. They'll love it!! And there are touch tanks too.

We took our son and daughter-in-law and our grandson when he was 1 and 1/2 year old, and we were really impressed. Our grandson loved the interactive activities. Every exhibit was beautifully done. There was also a lot of great information to read. It was definitely worth the cost of admission.

Our favorite part of the aquarium was the stingray experience. My kids also liked viewing all the various fish and animals, especially the sea turtles, jelly fish and sea horses. The museum keeps you on a path from start to finish and it is a lot. But that makes it worth the cost! My kids 9 & 13 enjoyed the aquarium. The museum was a lot of taxidermy animals. Most interesting to us were the live penguins in this portion.

Really had a blast, lots to do and see. This was our first experience at this Aquarium and is about 60 miles from Branson where we was staying. Glad we decided to go, took about 3 hours to see everything. Lots of information and didn't disappoint. The Museum is great as well, very similar to the one at top of the rock. It is located inside the biggest and first Brass Pro shop. Very well laid out so don't miss anything. Lots of walking, kids had a wonderful time.

Absolutely stunning and meticulously kept up. Took us several hours to get through the museum and aquarium. Both parts were great.

Pros:
Very well decorated, several themes that flowed into one another so very immersive. (Swamp area, shipwreck area, South America etc) use of special lighting and sound
- touch tank was large
- lots of computer screens to learn more about exhibits, several interactive exhibits
Cons:
- Super expensive, about $50 a person
- You have to do the conservation museum too, which is lots of taxidermy. If you are wanting to just do JUST the aquarium, you kinda can't.
- For some reason there's only one family bathroom on each floor so there was a line for every bathroom. The conservation museum floor bathroom did have stalls but dang there was a line for every single bathroom.
- There was very little seating near food/drink areas

Wow! This place is incredible. We'd heard it was worth the trip from Branson and they were right.

The aquarium is huge! We loved the Wonders of Wildlife too. Great Native American history, a huge emphasis on conservation too.

The kids loved it.

Stingray petting is free.

A few tips:
- park on the west side. Don't enter from Bass Pro it's quite a walk.
- Expect to spend 2 hours MINIMUM for Aquarium & 2hrs for Wonders of Wildlife.
- Pack snacks a drinks. They have a cafe and it was ok. Just be ready to pay $10 for grilled cheese and $3 for water.
- Download the map

It can get a little crowded in the more popular sections.

Totally worth buying the family pass. Can't wait to return.

Set aside at least 2 hours to see this awesome wildlife museum. It goes on and on and on. The animals are all so lifelike in realistic settings. Worth the ride from Branson!

This aquarium seems bigger on the inside than on the outside. Just follow the arrows, and you will see everything. Take time to read some of the signage to learn as much as you want.

This aquarium is awesome! It goes on and on and on. The environment is so realistic and there is a vast variety of fresh and salt water fish. It is clean and well maintained.
