Fascinating and beautiful displays of fish, sharks and other sea life. The grandkids loved it and the adults as well. It’s well laid out and organized for people to follow a one way path through the acquarium, including the moving conveyor through the shark enclosure. Well worth it ( 5 stars as compared to the 0.5 star trip that we took to the CNTower the day before).

The way the fish are showcased is excellent and the tunnel which has a moving floor ensures everyone gets a great view.
Worth the visit at the end of the day when the school trips had gone home!

It is a beautiful aquarium with dozens of different wildlife. The moving underground shark area was so amazing. I actually did it twice. I went alone and got to act like a child whose never seen a shark before. I also got to watch sting rays eat, which is actually adorable. They chew just like people!!

FORGOT ABOUT TIMED TICKETS, in fact forget about going period. Overcrowding, lack of crowd control makes viewing anything almost impossible. Put aside COVID for a moment. Now think for a moment about safe and fire regulations and nightmares will follow.

We were appalled!

It is a place you can easily spend 2-3 hours in. There is a stingray feeding session a few time a day and that's a treat to watch. Be careful not to touch the glass since everyone leans on it and touches it. The staff was helpful with signage and direction.
There is enough to keep you enthralled. There are enough spots to sit so you can pace yourself.

The museum is very well organized. Information is extensive and engaging. The tunnel beneath the aquarium is breathtaking. I was awed at each tank exhibit.
