"A wonderful experience with my brother and husband"
May 2019
My husband and I were hosting my brother at our new home for the first time. We wanted to give him an outstanding experience. My husband thought of the aquarium-we'd been wanting to go. I found the tickets on Tripster at a much lower price than my normal "go to" (starts with a G) so I bought them! Not only did we get in at a lower price, we got to skip the ticket lines (the other site would have required us to take vouchers to the ticket booth for redemption)! It was an AMAZING visit! Although it is a busy place ,the aquarium is huge with lots of exhibits and things to do. My brother was very impressed, saying it was much better than the aquarium where he lives in Ohio. We were able to provide a memorable experience for my brother without breaking the bank! Thanks!

Tip: 1. Be prepared to spend at least a few hours to fully enjoy it. 2. You can't bring in outside food or drinks. They do have them inside. 3. No flash photography.
