The staff is friendly, but interpretation is very light and for the cost it leaves you wanting more. The Tampa aquarium itself is shockingly poor when it comes to exhibitions and one on one interactions with docents or anyone that can help you understand Florida's water ecosystem. If you have been to the Shedd Aquarium or the Vancouver Aquarium or any other aquarium of a larger urban centre you will be disappointed. If this will be your first aquarium visit, then at least you won't know all the great things that could be done but the Florida aquarium doesn't have or do.
My guess: they don't have enough money to be better.
