Thought the entrance fee was fair for all that we saw. It's not huge, but very fun. Great adventure for about half the day. Could speed through it in a couple hours. We saw a 3d movie and that was worth it.

Very nice small aquarium. Easy access for families, strollers, wheelchairs... via very wide ramps between upper & lower levels. It can easily be viewed in a couple hours -- a little longer if you like reading exhibit info. They do a good job announcing upcoming events, like feedings of different fish. Asia section also has free-flying birds. Most viewing windows... More

We enjoyed our visit here. Lots of exhibits. The shark tank was beautiful. The penguin exhibit was neat as well. Also, we got some great shots of the clouded leopard. My biggest complaint was not that many hand washing stations. Lots of germs in this place. My kids loved the rope bridge.

Went here with my 3 little girls (12-6). Had a great time. Lots of animals (even a leopard) to see. Interactive tanks to touch stingrays, etc. movie theater with 4d movies included with admission price. We also paid for the penguin encounter. Great experience to feed and be up close with the penguins. You can not handle them but we... More

Enjoyed the Otter's 7th birthday party, watching the otters play with their cake and toys. We went over the rope ladder- that was an experience! like the new humpback whale sculpture saw the 3D movie-fun and nice to get out of the crowd love the smashed penny machines a little disappointed in the food for the price

We had a company party here - lunch plus time to visit the aquarium. The room had a window into the shark tank which was really cool- big hit with employees' kids. We spent about 2 hours wandering through the exhibits. With older kids or no kids I'm sure we could have spent another hour easily. They have the aquarium... More

This is a great place to take the kids. Kids of all ages love it including adults. I have a grandson that could watch the jellyfish forever. There is something mesmerizing and calming about watching fish. There are so many different exhibits to see. There is even a portion dedicated to Utah ecosystems. An hour or two can go by... More

This is a really amazing aquarium for a landlocked state. We were impressed with the number of fish and animals, and the wife variety that there was there. We took a two year old and he absolutely loved it. He was entranced by everything he saw. At times he was a little scared, like when he first found out there... More

I am amazed at the quality of this living aquarium when Utah is located 700 miles from the nearest coastline. The quality and variety of exhibits is top notch. You'll see penguins, a tiger exhibit, two different types of otters, a tropical bird exhibit, jelly fish, sharks and much more. Kids get hands on experience with the stingray touch pool.... More
