Very well done, but small. Really good for like 5-10 year olds. Since it only takes about an hour to get through it will hold the kiddos attention. Reasonable at 19.95 pet adult and cheaper for kids. They also had some kind of special scavenger...More

First Aquarium inside a mall i've been to. The exhibits were great and of course great for the kids. I enjoyed it as well and even saw fish I've never seen before.

Great aquarium. We were a little skeptical since it was in the mall but definitely caught our attention. The area was clean and full of surprises. One recommendation to ensure personal taking photo is aware how to take it especially with BIG groups. We went...More

It is a very small aquarium but has neat info stations for the types of fish. Kids had fun and the stingray tank was really cool. Take your time and read all about the fish.
