    Did you know? No other aquariums in the world have hippos on display, and only one other aquarium in the United States has a Hammerhead Shark. Read more

    Bring your own food! They have a cafe but the food is expensive and not very good

    This is an awesome place! The touch tanks were fun for the kids. The exhibits were fantastic, and the place very clean.

    Pro tip: The Aquarium Cafe is crowded and expensive — eat at Bain's Deli next door instead. Make sure to get your hands stamped!

    Getting an annual pass is a good idea! Went 3 times so far with it and already saved money. It's great for kids (zone C is now a kids zone) and 4D spongebob movie is cute. I love the aquarium

    Very kid friendly, lots of interactive exhibits and the window exhibits are eye level for toddlers. Arrive around 10, leave in time for nap.

    Start in Zone D with the Hippos then work your way to Zone A. Don't miss feeding the Sting Rays....

    There is a breastfeeding room! You don't have to nurse in the car beforehand!

    Super expensive for what it is.

    This place was great! My 4 year old twin boys and 3 year old niece loved it. The highlights are the shark tank and all the areas where you get to pet things (sting rays, sharks, jelly fish and more).

    If you want to avoid crowds, come during the week. Unless its summertime, then it's ALWAYS crowded.

    Ridiculously expensive... And the least impressive aquarium I've been to.

    Did you know that you and your family can reserve a spot and snorkel in the shark tank? They don't advertise it but there are guided tours offered at the information desk.

    Go see the hippos at the end of the day. They know it's feeding time and are most active

  • C E.

    This place is a lot of fun for kids but expensive. Still worth it if you're in Camden. Keep in mind that during the week it's packed w/ school groups which can make it a bit of hassle to get around.
