I want to give this place a better rating but I can't right now. Everyone who works there is awesome and they really try, but they got screwed by hurricane sandy so there's not a whole lot to do there and you can run through the place in about 20 minutes. This will probably change once they get their new addition all set up. Can't wait for that. Having said that, it's still a fun place to take little kids. The animals are super cute

The staff is really friendly. There isn't much to do and it is a quick run through. The price is not bad compared to other aquariums in other states. I think once the new exhibits are finished it would be nice to check out again.

Was under construction. Can not wait till it is finished in July!!!! It is going to be 5 stars!!!! People working there were great and the sea lion show fun!! 3 stars only ? Not entirely their fault. Not everything was open due to the cold weather . But I"'ll go back in the summer.

The two stars are driven by the significant amount of time it's taking to redo this aquarium. Even for $11, there just isn't enough to do. With that being said, the two stars comes solely from the Sea lion show. We went on a slow day and this was the best show I have ever seen. Even included an up close and personal experience. If the refurbishment is ever complete, I would try again.

It's not finished yet, but it's really nice. A few sea lions and see otters. Sharks are nice too. Love the lookdown fish. Aquatic amphitheater is fun to watch. It will get my 5 stars when completed.
