This is a small aquarium but we enjoyed our visit. We were there during the seal show which was fun to watch. They have a nice variety of fish to view.

We went here (from Pittsburgh) excited to see the penguins and sea lions. It cost us about $60 and that was for a family of six with a discount. We have been to larger and also more moderately sized aquariums and I expected enough exhibits...More

It is clean and well kept. The seals are the best part and they seem so happy and loved. I was impressed.

The place is extremely small. It was a very long walk since there is no trolley stop here and we were in there maybe 10 minutes. Would not recommend.

Having read other reviews, we only did this because it was part of our Discovery Pass. It is quite small and in need of renovation. We did enjoy the sea lion show. I would not purchase tickets just for this attraction, but worth a stop...More

Small aquarium was cool on a hot day. The sea lions were a hit and worth waiting for! it's a quick walk to the Discovery center nearby which is an excellent source for the geology and history of the falls.

The Aquarium of the Niagara is a small but well maintained aquarium worth a short visit especially if you have small kids. It should be combined with the visit to the Discovery Center which is an interactive place for the kids. The aquarium has shows...More

You can go through in about 30 minutes. It will be longer if you stay for the show. This is a small aquarium. I think it is best suited for children.
