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.

The idea is great, but this is a definite SKIP!! I got this attraction as part of a Groupon package (included with Wax Works and Ripley's Believe it or Not). When you first enter you are standing at the check out counter of the gift...More

I used to go here as a child. I recently returned with my family. I was grateful that I didn't pay anything to go here as it was essentially free with my Groupon discount. This place is dirty, creepy, and houses some of the most...More

The expectation of this place should be seriously adjusted... The pamphlets and advertisements make it seem like a vibrant scenery of local underwater life. However, once descending the stairs you come to find a dimly lit, dingy space surrounded by brownish/gray water with minimal aquatic...More

You shouldn't have a problem with a group that size. There is a sitting area for about 30 people to watch the show. They have a swimmer scuba dive and talk about the critters in the tanks. What you will see is standard year... More
