The Aquatarium didn't live up to the advertising or our expectations. It wasn't horrible. It wasn't even bad. But the $20 admission wasn't worth it. It's quite spread out and the displays are skimpy. Most of the fish tanks were quite dark and it was...More

Sorry it has taken so long, you need about an hour and it is more suited to younger, but I believe adults would enjoy it as well. Take in the Railway Tunnel as part of your trip. Oldest in Canada

We were there about an hour but it was soon after it opened and I think not entirely complete. We do intend to go back in July with our young grandchildren and expect to spend much more time. Great place for children.
