This has a ton of great animals to see and exhibits to interact with. There's a shark tank that you can go through by Plexiglas tunnels or a glass bottom boat to look through. There's a McDonald's-type-playplace but more like 3 stories and adults can fit inside. There was an unusual exhibit about Abe Lincoln that my 5 year old really enjoyed. You can touch horseshoe crabs and Jellyfish. My daughter really loved it. If it's a rainy day and you're not sure what to do, this will be a good time for the kids. Why didn't I give it 5 stars? Of all the aquariums we've been to, this by far had the smallest tanks. They were small enough where my daughter asked how come the star fish were so close together. The tank that was about 6 inches tall, 2 feet wide and 3 feet long with 4 starfish in it and nothing else but sand. These exhibits definitely prevented the sea creatures from hiding but it was hard not to wonder how good it was for their lifespan. Outside of that gut feeling, it was a great time for the whole family.
