Having read other reviews, we only did this because it was part of our Discovery Pass. It is quite small and in need of renovation. We did enjoy the sea lion show. I would not purchase tickets just for this attraction, but worth a stop...More

Small aquarium was cool on a hot day. The sea lions were a hit and worth waiting for! it's a quick walk to the Discovery center nearby which is an excellent source for the geology and history of the falls.

The Aquarium of the Niagara is a small but well maintained aquarium worth a short visit especially if you have small kids. It should be combined with the visit to the Discovery Center which is an interactive place for the kids. The aquarium has shows...More

Small but interactive aquarium. Probably wouldn't pay extra to go visit, not enough to see and do, but as a part of the offered "Discovery Pass" was worth a visit. Worth an hour or so.

It's quite a small aquarium but it is well set out. The seal show was fun to watch and there was a small penguin colony too.

I must admit that coming to the Aquarium of Niagara was a surprise, since there are so many other things going on in the area. There is plenty of free parking. We checked the schedule on the website, so we timed our visit to those...More

We visited the Aquarium in the summer of 2017, on a trip to Niagara from Western Massachusetts for my son's birthday. The aquarium is smallish (I've been to both larger and smaller aquariums) but has a lot of heart and is absolutely worth a visit....More

I remember taking trips here with my elementary school. The place seemed huge. Now that I'm older, the place is tiny! I was looking forward to going there, but was disappointed. My sister and I struggled to spend an hour there. The outdoor seals were...More

It is something interesting to do when the weather is against you. Highlights of the visit was the Penguin feeding and the seal show.
