We visited the Aquarium in the afternoon, 4-8pm, for half the prices $12.5 It was a wonderful experience, especially because of the helpful, knowledgable and kind staff. You need to plan what activities you'll do. It's a learning experience.

Obviously, this is a rehabilitation for animals so it’s a great place filled with great people! But I felt like it was so small and it was so quick to walk through. We got to see Winter and Hope who we had no idea who...More
