While my kids loved their time, I personally find that you can spend about an hour - hour and a half and have seen everything. I find it expensive for that.

My family and some friends visited the aquarium on a rainy day. We had two toddlers with us who were both just under 2 years old. We really enjoyed seeing the different animals and our son loved watching the seals swim around. We were there...More

Really enjoyed taking the kids and getting the whole aquarium experience. Must say though, the enclosure for the seals was disgusting and way too small for such beautiful creatures. The fish are fine, but the seal enclosure water was less than 3' and 1/10th the...More

We enjoyed our visit, we ended up there right for their feeding times, and the keepers also gave little info sessions before they fed them so that was interesting too. My kids spent a LONG time at the touch tank, that was the highlight for...More

The interactive aquariums for the kids to touch and see the animals in their natural environment was great. Our 10 year old daughter loved it and could have spent the day there. She also was thrilled to see the labour seals.

While not the most diverse aquarium, Huntsman is a perfect intro for young kids (8 and under) to learn about tide pools, marine life, seals and rays.

Very interesting place and the staff are very friendly! There's a beautiful setting along the water outside to sit and reflect as well. Lobsters, urchins, seahorses, seals, salmon, starfish, and other sea creatures. Beautifully maintained.
