It was wonderful - it was raining and it was so nice to not have to stand outside waiting in the line. The museum was wonderful and I cannot wait to go back. Now the enclosures for the animals were very small-- I do hope they are only there temporary.

Excellent experience with an amazing collection of animals. We loved it! These are regular aquarium tickets, there is no tour (we didn't expect it). The information on the listing says "host / greeter" - which is a bit misleading as there is just the regular ticket attendant welcoming all guests as usual.
