    Nice staff here;) very small aquarium. Oldest in the country. It's been under construction, 2012 hurricane sandy. Every Friday from 4 to 6, pay as you wish.

    Unfortunately, after the hurricane, the Acquarium is not worth the visit!...

    Horrible experiance. No water fountains working, overpriced food,very small place.4d theater was warm! Parking 14.00
  • Aaron B.
    Not worth going until the facilities are finished. $5 or less would have been a way better price point for what you get.

    Expensive not worth it unless you want to see sharks and penguins

    Sea Lion show saved the day, but otherwise this place is very small...only good because my toddler loves sharks and they have quite a few

    I wouldn't visit until the new Shark Exhibit is open. A lot of the aquarium is closed for renovation.

    At the Sea Cliffs, you can watch penguins, sea lions, sea otters, seals, and walrus frolic: the best action is at feeding time. Read more

    The oldest aquarium! I must say the animals were the most outgoing! Can do the entire place in an hour

    sea lion show has some fun tricks, but the short lectures on biology and conservation may not hold the attention of your 3 year old

    Decent collection of sealife, fun for a quick tour and fairly cheap but nothing special

    The walruses and otter exhibits were the best! This aquarium is rather small due to construction, it took more time on the train getting there than to explore the entire aquarium.

    Loved the sea lion show. The aquarium is still undergoing changes post Sandy. I'll be coming back in 2015.

    a lot of it is still under renovation, so you'll want to plan to visit some other spots in coney rather than make the trip just for the aquarium

    If you don't mind a small walk, park in the Brooklyn cyclone's parking lot ($9) as opposed to the Aquarium's lot ($25)

    Even though they're still rebuilding after Sandy, there's not much to see or do here anyway. We were there for about 45 mins. Big disappointment.

    There were three exhibits closed when we came. Took about 15 minutes to see the whole thing. Cost: $24. Kind of underwhelmed.

    Go fish! Admission today was only five bucks due to construction but still well worthy it.

    The bad news: The Aquarium is still recovering after Hurricane Sandy so there are few exhibits. The good news: Admission is only $9.95 and there are cute penguins.

    This place is a zoo. (Too many people!)

    Right off the boardwalk, this fun, kid-friendly aquarium offers lots of opportunities to peek at creatures of the waterworld.

    The aquarIum was only 40% open. They are still rebuilding after super storm Sandy. They will most likely be 100% open by spring 2014 they said. ...hopefully!

    Get there at 9:55 on a week day * hit the penguin feeding when they announce it {on the warmer summer days it will be the only time to see them} * see the 11am sea lion show * be on the beach by noon!

    Struggling hard post-Sandy only 3 animals and a little 15 min sea lion show but If you're already at Coney Island it's cute and now now only $10.

    Don't bother going until 2015 which is when the reconstruction is to be finished. They have no exhibitions open since hurricane Sandy, except for some fish aquariums, walrus & seals. Waste of time.

    Admission on Fridays from 3pm until closing is pay-what-you-wish. Fun fact: This is America's oldest aquarium, dating to 1896.

    The New York Aquarium has just recently reopened after sustaining a great deal of damage from Sandy. There is very limited attractions at the moment.

    Just reopened after the Sandy damage. Only about 50% open but we need to support our local businesses!
