I really enjoyed it here because I love aquariums so once I saw fish, I was happy! But there's a lot more to it than that as well, an exhibition on time when we went, dinosaurs outside and physics games, puzzles, etc. We went as...More

We decided to come here to visit with our grandson who is 3. The aquarium is really nice and there are fun activities inside and outside for younger kids. We spent about 2 hours here. There is covered parking in the immediate area.

Made me feel like a kid again. We were completely consumed with the activities, animals, fish, games and interactive things that we didn't even think about the time or our plans after. We stayed until they kicked us out and didn't even get to finish!...More

So much to do, an afternoon was not enough. Fun, interesting and interactive place for all to visit. Kids had an amazing time; wish we could have been there longer.

This place is cool but some of it was over my head and I can speak a pretty good amount of Spanish. The helpers around the exhibits are very friendly and helpful which I appreciated. Its definitely geared towards kids though.
