We have seen various aquariums and this the most expensive and not worth the price. If you do multiple things with aquarium then its ok. If doing just aquarium then its very expensive.

My husband, teenager, and baby all enjoyed the aquarium. It has a little something for everyone. The exhibits are very open and easily accessible. There are several hands on animal encounters and the penguins are so fun! I would recommend stopping here for an afternoon.
