My 24 year old son and myself brought my 1 1/2 year old grandson on Mother's Day. We enjoyed the experience very much. My grandson loved the inter-active area of the Aquarium with the water tables. I was pleasantly surprised with a free Mother's Day...More

We stopped here to stretch our legs, and it's a nice little aquarium! Maybe a little pricey for what it is, but it was still nice.

They did a good job with this space. I've been to larger aquariums , but for this area it's a good size.

I wasn't sure what to expect from a smaller aquarium, but I was not disappointed! There were many different species of marine animals and a nice set up to see everything. My favorite area is the stingrays. They have added some new stingrays and the...More

We finally found the time to visit this place called Via Aquarium, and so glad we did. Someone truly engineered a wonderful experience, with a wide range of fish covering most of the worldwide regions. The signage at each tank does a great job explaining...More

This facility is quite new and a little hard to find (signage is not the best), but my husband and I were impressed. This is no Boston, Atlanta or Monterrey aquarium by any means, but there is plenty to see of both fresh water and...More
