It's a very nice aquarium, a couple of huge tanks, one that you walk through. True story - got hustled through the entrance due to filming of an episode of NCIS New Orleans that was taking place beside the building !!
We visited the aquarium and it was fantastic. I am giving 3 stars to this rating because we wanted to change the date on our vouchers due to inclement weather. When I called, the customer service representative just told me to contact the aquarium myself and see if they would take my voucher another day. Viator wouldn't take any responsibility for the exchange. In the end, I had to do viator's staff job and do the exchange directly at the aquarium. There wasn't any problem but if the aquarium hadn't taken my voucher, I would have lost all my money.
The Aquarium was really fun and educational my two nieces who were 11 and 9 thought it was awesome!!! Sticking her head in the underwater pool and training the otters was the best! We went to the insectorium also and they loved it!! The 9 year old even ate bugs!! The 11 loves the butterfly garden.
The zoo and aquarium were nice. The person taking the online reservation made an error and only gave the zoo however, was corrected by the next person at the theater. Would prefer to see the animals in their natural habitat versus in a tank or cage.
Our trip to the Aquarium and the Zoo was wonderful. The only glitch we had is: The person at the ticket counter at the aquarium had no idea how to process the voucher. He gave us tickets to the zoo only, but the attendant taking tickets was gracious enough to let us into the Aquarium. Both places were awesome and I give it a five.
