Excellent family experience, well laid out with lots of interactive things to see.,very informative displays. Fascinating to see the huge variety of marine life. Particularly impressed with the way the reception staff engaged and interacted with a special needs child. Expensive admission fees though

We had a great time! I took my 8 year old niece and she loved it. We did the "behind the scene" tour with Austin and he was amazing! The aquarium is a little pricey but worth it. We had a great experience!!!
