    Pretty pricy and very crowded but it was fun, clears out a little further from the front. Best part was the Jetsons moving floor through the tanks. Definitely touristy.

    Very good laid out Aquarium. Educational and only one of the very few bright spots to visit if you're in MB.

    Very fun place to see animals that you would not usually get see, even can touch a few! Gets crowded during the busy season later on in the day so plan on getting there around the time they open.

    Recommend discount tickets. It's expensive for how quickly you get through it. The gift shop is extremely affordable in comparison to most zoos/aquariums.

    Best part is the shark tunnel! There is also a place to touch sting rays. Go during the day while it's the warmest outside to cool off!

    Really beautiful exhibits. You can learn a bunch if you can manage to read info signs through the crowds. Was worth every penny! I'd recommend buying your tickets online for a discount though.

    The mermaid shows run every couple hours and are followed by a meet & greet where you can ask the mermaids questions and take photos. Such a magical experience for my 3 year old.

    Pricey and really only about an hours worth of exhibits to see. Good exhibits, though. The staff was friendly as well. The Atlanta Aquarium was a much better experience (larger, easier to navigate).

    not worth the money unless you have toddlers its very small. Sting ray touch...after feeding you can't get one to come close to anyone waiting. Left disappointed...nice giant lighbright for kiddos

    Don't buy tickets outside, walk inside at the desk on the right and say you were trying to buy online on your phone & they will price-match the online price so you can save a few bucks.

    The only reason we went was because it was a combo deal with Pirate Adventures (which I highly recommend) otherwise it was a rip off.

    Pay $22 a person, do some ooh's and aah's for about 30 minutes and then be disappointed as it just ends abruptly. Spend a quarter to feed the carp on the bridge instead...
