Aquarium is not very large, but the it is very enjoyable. All the different kinds of animals was very interesting. The aquarium is nicely spaced out. Really enjoyed it. The IMAX movie was awesome. Would come back!

Definitely not an aquarium for adults. Very very young children would enjoy it! Very expensive and there is nothing there. Choose another aquarium to visit! Will never go back!

When my son was little we visited the Maritime Aquarium at least once a month. There are so many exhibits that were interactive and entertaining, as well as educational. They have fish-petting times (okay it was a sting-ray, or a manta) feeding times for the...More
