Very well maintained, but not very big. The size was about right for my two year old son, though. We made it through all the exhibits, plus a boat ride and “behind the scenes” tour in about two hours. I love aquariums and would have...More

It was a really nice experience. It was a little pricy compared to other things to do. But it was really nice and interesting

We had a great time at the aquarium! A lot of fun for the family. We live two hours away and bought a season pass.

We had a great time. We were a group of 11. The kids loved the mermaid show. They got to touch and feed the stingrays and jelly fish. We were there three hours.

We spent about three to four hours here, but I'm sure if I had the chance to contain my kids' excitement, we could have easily spent most of the day here. The exhibits are fascinating and everything was indoor, so the rain from the looming...More

To expensive regardless if your a veteran or senior which I am both. Went to see the Pearl Harbor exhibit I could have seen and read more by looking at Life Magazine. A real disappointment and waste of sixty dollars.

Visited Ripley’s Aquarium today, it is very commercial and a bit disappointing. While buying tickets you get offered all kinds of add on for extra fees, even a dollar for a souvenir guidebook. Exhibits are okay, but probably won’t do it again.

I guess maybe my expectations for this aquarium were too high. It’s a perfectly good aquarium. The shark tunnel is really cool. But other than that I was unimpressed. Having just recently visited Shedd’s Aquarium in Chicago I expected this one to be bigger and...More

Hello. We went on a Saturday evening around 6pm. It was pleasant. Not to many visitors were there. You can always call ahead to confirm before you get there. Safe travels!

I don't think you will need snacks. I sure you could take bottled water. It doesn't take that long.
