We went here for the first time during our last vacation. The kids liked it and they liked how they could touch different animals. Our daughter liked the mermaid show. The boat tour they offer for an additional fee is overpriced since the Aquarium is not cheap in the first place it would be nice if that would be included.

It's a nice aquarium not the biggest that I've been to but it's nice you stand on a moving side walk as you go through the aquarium the aquarium is above and on both sides of you they have a lot of saltwater tropical fish sharks and other fish they also have other things to do

The moving walkway through the aquarium tank was our favorite. Trying to find the single turtle was tough. There aren't any dolphins which my daughter was looking forward to seeing. We did find one "Nemo" fish in the last room we explored. I enjoyed seeing the Christmas trees from each state. I did not enjoy exiting the aquarium through the... More

Not the weird stuff the other Ripley's are famous for. This had lots of sea critters in several different venues. Some you see going trough this tunnel where the water is on3 sides of you and the floor moves you along. Another section has this big area where you can watch the rays move around. They come right up to... More

Ripley's aquarium was recommended by a friend. We had never been to MB at that time, and we asked what can we do if the weather is not in our favor. It was a great suggestion! We had no kids with us, but they would have loved it. My favorite memory: the sharks swimming up above us ! That is... More

Plan to spend a little time. The fish are beautiful and the atmosphere is peaceful. We spent about 4 hours just walking around and looking. They offer a locals discount which makes it even more inviting. A must see for all ages.
