Rescued sea lions put on wonderful demonstrations of what they have learned to do. Liked the chorography with the music along with the routine. Lots of cool fish and other creatures and so much info about them. Kids enjoyed it a lot.

Well it is true that this aquarium is quite small and if you have been to the really huge aquarium in Monterey, CA already then this is just a corner of it. However the aquarium is still educational and the sea lion show is a big attraction for kids. As an adult you may have finished your aquarium tour in an hour. Parking is free in front of the aquarium.

Small, poorly lit, poor exhibit descriptions.

Less than a 30 minute tour; though, the sea lion show is worth a stop. I am having a difficult time understanding how this qualifies as an aquarium especially if you've visited larger and better organized institutions.

Frankly, it looks as though nothing has changed in the last five to seven years...

Highly disappointed because this was highly recommended. Very small you can walk around the entire place in less than 30 mins. The kids were only impressed by the sea lion show and the feeding of the penguins. Overall they just walked through asking is that it. If I lived in the vicinity I probably still wouldn't visit this place.

We visit this aquarium each time we come to Niagara Falls. Even as adults we enjoy the great displays and attractions. Make sure you catch the shows!
