As someone who is passionate about fishkeeping, I was very upset and disappointed about the quality. I didn’t mind the fact the aquarium was so small, with the $6 ticket price you get what you pay for. They have several reptiles and insects that aren’t...More

This aquarium is very small, but the entrance fee is cheap so you pay for what you get. My 5 year old enjoyed it, I did as well because I like animals. Good place to stop if you have small children.

This was so small and not worth the money. As others have said it’s one room you walk through and look at the fish in tanks. My toddler liked it but my 10 year old was disappointed and so were my husband and myself. I...More

Small little area with aquariums and a few other things like tarantula, lizards, etc. The guy behind the counter wasn't very friendly was the only negative.

Nice little place. It wasn't huge and didn't have a huge selection. However, for the price, this place was great. The tanks were clean and well set up. Staff was super friendly. Papers posted by each exhibit were informative. Thanks for a great time.

Almost missed it. Small frontage. Friendly staff. Very small aquarium and gift shop. Could use upgrading.

I can't recommend this for anyone, really. It is old, run down and displays pet store animals for the most part. A good many of the tanks were bare, just some gravel or dirt in the bottom and water and food dishes. Nothing to enrich...More
