    Beautiful aquarium! It is crowded on weekends. Do yourself a favor, buy your tickets online! Allot at least 2 hours to see everything!

    It gets crowded during the weekend, hard to walk around. Not really worth the time or money.

    Don't like screaming kids whose parents aren't concerned with what their kids are doing? Then don't come here on a weekend.

    The animals seem happy. NEAQ seems to care a lot about conservation which is great; I LOVED the sting ray touch-tank.

    Beautifully cared for with a nice selection of fish. Organization is a little confusing, but oh well. The massive central reef tank is very impressive. Go to a seal training session!

    Great place for the family. Fantastic exhibits and shows. You can easily spend most of the the day there in awe at all the sea life on show.

    Been here 10+ times
    Cool exhibits, but I wish they updated this place 100%... unlike the Museum of Science, nothing here changes, so there's really no reason to keep returning. And they keep jacking up the price!!
