Beautiful place. Animal exhibits are so gorgeous. Sting ray tank is so clean and clear. Much more economical for a family. Touch tanks were a great experience.

I've been to some amazing aquariums in the past, so there was nothing spectacular about this one, but one thing that was different and fun about this one is there is little Lego figures and statues throughout the tanks. So, there's a submarine, divers, etc....More

Great little aquarium… Our Grandson enjoyed all of it. So did we. The aquarium had a person there answering question about anything your little human had. Then they received a badge.

The aquarium at Legoland is average. I enjoyed the Jellyfish habitat and the sharks. The hands-on section could be improved. It was a little difficult for my nephew to reach the starfish. Overall it's a nice aquarium.
