TOOK THE GRANDCHILDREN IN THEY HAD A GREAT TIME, GREAT DAY!!!
I really enjoyed visiting the Aquarium. Everything about our trip was great, I can't down load pics, as I don't know how.
I've been here dozens of times and I'm fascinated every time. I could stare at the penguins for hours.
I bring all our visitors from out of town to the NE Aquarium, and everyone has loved it! It's a great experience for kids and adults- entertaining and educational. I'm sure we'll be back!
jumped right ahead of the huge queue. well worth it.
Perfect get-away for our family of 4! Can't wait to go back!
The Aquarium was fascinating! We spent 6 hours in awe..... including the IMAX theater to conclude our day. We would definitely plan to visit again.
We had a great time! My little ones (5 and 8) were on sensory overload. They particularly enjoyed the penguins and the touch tanks. We all enjoyed the IMAX movie about Orangutans and orphan elephants...and at a great price thanks to Viator.
