I brought my grandson and granddaughter. My grandson liked looking at all the fish. Though some areas of the tanks seem to be very dark and hard to see. But then there were beautiful tanks with colorful coral. He enjoyed being able to touch the starfish and the girl there was very good at keeping everyone at a distance. We only went through once but next time would go around twice because it is quite small compared aquariums we have visited in the past. It is located in a mall so it is better than having to travel hours away to the larger aquariums.

We took my granddaughter, it was the perfect size. With enough sealife to keep her attention. We actually went through twice. She wanted to look at the seahorses, sharks and the sea turtle again.

It was great for my husband and I who has never been to the aquarium.

It was great the kids really had a wonderful time.
