Surprising collection for a small space! Loved the tortoise, especially but the whole place was interesting. I have been to several aquariums and still haven't seen some of the fish that were in this aquarium

We chose not to enter after looking through the tinted door window. It is made out to be more than it is.

This place is small and I don't think it has anything to do with a National Park. The grandson liked it especially with the large turtle that was crawling around the aquarium floors.

The family and I are in hot springs for our yearly vacation. We wanted to do something we haven't done before while here. Decided to go to aquarium. Kinda small and outdated but still fun and fairly inexpensive.

My wife and I recently visited the aquarium. Having visited many aquariums across the country, this one was somewhat of a disappointment. It is dark and poorly lighted and somewhat small; however, there is some good news here in that there are some interesting and...More

Took my wife and 3 kids so I was happy the price was so affordable. The best thing was the turtle which roams freely inside the viewing area. The selection of animals was good but the sparse number of each type of animal made many...More

Price is right for this tiny aquarium. Kids enjoyed it. Small setup but very informative. Turtle was loose walking around.

Pricey for not much to see. The turtles were nice, and some of the fish were rare. But not all that big. In and out in 15 minutes

I think it was $4 or $5 for a child to get into the aquarium but can't remember for sure. I know it didn't cost much for me and my child to get in at all. Hope that helps!!
