I only went because it was part of the package deal with Ripleys and the Wax museum. Waste of time. Just sad. The little portholes you look through are all green and slimy so you can’t see much. It’s cramped and smelly.

Can be visited as part of a package deal with the Wax Works and The Ripley's Believe It or Not. It hasn't changed a bit in the 40 years since my parents first took me there. Small, dark, and needs better lighting, serious modernizing and...More

This place is cramped. The animals are slow and lethargic.... it's basically like they are inprisoned. There is a gift shop with assorted knicks and plastic junk.

This place made me sad! The old sturgeon and several other fish have blunted nose's from running into the tank walls. We bought tickets along with Ripley's and the Waxworks, but I wouldn't return or recommend this attraction to anyone. These sad fish should be...More

I'm sure this was once an attraction worth seeing, but now it's just...well... musty, dirty and DONE. We went because it was included in the Ripley's passes we purchased, but if I had paid in full to enter this attraction, I would have been asking...More

If you are going to see the Undersea Gardens, I would recommend you take advantage of the three-attraction pass. The other two exhibits are less than a block away. As we had been here before, we knew that we wanted to be there at feeding...More

This was basically a giant underground fish tank with lots of crabs running around. To be fair, I don't have many opportunities to watch crabs being crabs so it was interesting but really, you can see everything in 10-15 minutes, including ample time to watch...More

My husband and I purchased a combo ticket package through Groupon for Ripleys, Wax works, and the Undersea Gardens. We enjoyed our visit to Newport and seeing all that the museums had to offer. Sure, seeing it once is enough to likely hold you over...More

It's small, dingy, and not exciting. Not worth the money. Especially disappointing when we'd just visited the Aquarium. Would definitely never pay too go here again.

You can buy your 3-way pass at any of the three sites. I don’t remember the cost, but you should be able to find it online.
