This aquarium is surprisingly large and nice to be inside a mall, and we had a really good time there. It's just a bit more expensive than seems necessary, so we don't go frequently. There are great kids activities along the way as well -...More

Went there with family, had a great time. If you want to save some money buy tickets online. There is also lots of things to do in and around the aquarium, being it's in the mall. Would recommend going to Sea Life Aquarium.
