"A hidden gem"

Not a very large aquarium but we took our time and really enjoyed looking at the sea life and stayed about an hour. My only complaint was that they had stamp stations but they didn't work.

"Mediocre Aquarium"

Have been to top Aquariums ....e.g. Monte Carlo, Atlanta, others. So visiting Charlotte we thought we'd try this one. Perhaps it is good for kids (although we saw a half dozen kids there who seemed less than interested.). It is flashy and made to look fun, but just not great. NOT FOR ADULTS!. A wide variety of fish but nothing spectacular. And it is expensive!

It was a great entertainment for the kids but it isn't that big. Great for a quick break from the mall or just to do something cheap and fun with the kids.

"Good Family Trip"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 20, 2019
This was a really good family trip. The aquarium is bigger than I expected. We saw various kinds of fish, glowing fish, sea horses, sea creatures and sharks. There is even an area where children can pet and touch star fish, snails and other safe sea creatures. They have a book for the kids to stamp at each section of the aquarium and when they get all the stamps they get a free gift at the end of the tour. We took pictues at the end and it made for a great family memento. A pleasant, fun and enjoyable trip for the whole family. Very nice! I recommend.
