A little bit pricey unless you sit through a condo sales pitch to get free tickets. This is educational and entertaining. Love the conveyor belt through the shark tunnel!!

I loved this place. It was interesting and was easy for the kids to be entertained and educated at the same time. Loved the Pearl Habor Exhibit.

We've visited this aquarium several times and it is always changing! We especially loved the new jellyfish exhibit where you can PET A JELLYFISH! It's also always super clean and the animals seem happy and well cared for.
