This aquarium had great displays. My sons loved the octopus and the big fish displays. The area where you can touch was difficult because the walls were way too high and the water was too deep for my 2 and 4 year old to see or touch much. Although they did have some cool stuff like a lobster, crabs, and star fish in there. On the otherside of the aquarium was a lot of informational displays that were way over my kids level. Although there was a display outside about currents that the boys loved playing with the little boats. They also had a nice shark display outside as well. Definately not an all day event, but a nice couple of hours. Oh and leave your stroller in the car, it isn't that much walking and it is difficult to see from the stroller.
