This is a pretty decent aquarium. It is not a par with big city aquariums, but is the best we have around here. Kids are treated well. It is a little pricey for what you get.More

This is a fascinating place to visit. They especially cater to the younger kids too. There are places they can stand up in and appear to be in the middle of the water with the fish. It is educational and fun.

Pleasantly surprised when we visited here last weekend. It's much better than most aquariums we've been to. So much to see and activities to do. The website doesn't do it justice at all. It's huge. We took our 11 y/o grandson who really enjoyed it....More

It is a small center, so it depends on how long you view the attractions. I would say no more than 40 minutes.
