    I used to come here as a kid. Admission is expensive, but we always had a good time. Finally saw the new Australia exhibit and was not very impressed. The regular part of the aquarium is awesome, tho

    Great place to visit on a rainy day, when is not that busy. This aquarium is exactly the same with the one in Barcelona, excepting the dolphin encounter, which you really have to see.

    If you have a family of 4 it makes sense to just purchase a membership as it can be covered just by visiting the aquarium 2.5x! Sure you can catch a special deal but it's not worth the huge crowds

    They don't do dolphin shows anymore (yay happy dolphins!) so the stadium is a great place to relax during your trip. Just sit and watch the dolphins play with soccer balls
