My wife and I spent a pleasant afternoon at the aquarium. Parking was $3. Admission cost about $36 for two senior citizens. The layout is fun and not just tanks of fish. The personnel working there were very courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable about the various creatures on exhibit. You can pet and feed the stingrays, and they have an area... More

I visited here briefly while in Cleveland. The facility was really nice - laid out well, and with a lot of really cool aquatic life. Looks like it would be great for families and kids.

The Greater Cleveland Aquarium was a pleasant surprise for us. We went in without expectations and left feeling like we had experienced something unique. My husband is a saltwater tank fan and he had big kudos for the reef tank. It was healthy and vibrant. The shark tank is hands-down the best we've ever seen. The "sunken ship" in the... More

I had a wonderful time at the aquarium both times I've been. It's a little higher priced but they have discount days which make it really affordable!

We were in town for my hubby and son to attend the Cowboys/Browns game and my daughter and I decided to be tourists while they were at the game. She really didn't have any interest in the RnR Hall of Fame and the Science Museum was closed due to the game (how lame...who doesn't want business?). We needed something within... More

The Aquarium is in the Flats area of Cleveland, which is going thru a renewal. The Aquarium is small but, full of great things. The building has been converted from a power plant and is really cool to walk thru. Tons of stuff to do in the Flats area, too.

We really enjoyed the wide variety of fish at this aquarium. My family enjoys visiting aquariums and we found this to be one of the better we've seen.
