This was a great experience for people of all ages. Highly recommend paying the extra $10 for the behind the scenes tour. Made for a memorable rainy day!
Had a great day out with my 5yo, she loved it, especially the touch pool & jelly fish. The behind the scenes tour was definitely worth it - she was so interested & excited to see everything.
Amazing aquarium! Couldn't recommend it enough. If you are able to, do the behind the scenes tour. It puts the aquarium into perspective and is really informative. Great for families and highly recommend for holiday goers!
