average at best.....looks like they need some funding. its small and the only highlight was watching the male walrus yell back and forth to the females. if you just cant find something else to do.....then hit the city again and drink a beer.

On a rainy day, we visited the aquarium & saw wonderful exhibits of jelly fish & seahorses, among the usual things. They also have outdoor exhibits of polar bears, seals & walruses.

Don't miss this visit. Although this is not a huge attraction, it has some very interesting points: Polar bears and walrus behind glass pools. They are extremely cute and interact a lot with the audience, especially around feeding hours. A pond for interacting (touching) stingrays....More

We almost didn’t go as we had read some bad reviews, so glad we did. It is not big but we spent over 4 hours there. There is a lot of information if you take time to read about the animals.

Love this cute aquarium! It is easily seen in 3 hours and has plenty of different animals! I would return! They also do shows for feeding the animals as well.

Small but very well done. Perhaps the best collection of seahorses we have seen! The jellyfish were also outstanding. However, the show steelier, for us, were the mammals! As we walked up to one of the seal exhibits among some kids, the resting seals seemed...More
