Kids love it!

What a terrific way to spend the day by the river! My kids not only love looking at all the fish inside the acquarium, but they get a kick out of watching the ships go down the river, too. This place is hard to beat and we visit several times a year. We've found out that the neighborhood is full of kid-friendly places, too. There's the new insectarium, the La. Children's Museum, and Chez Clay paint-your-own-pottery studio all within ten blocks of each other. It's hard to keep the kids ...view morehome, with all this fun close by!view less

Not exactly a great aquarium. Update this site.

Need to update this site. This site said 3 hrs free parking at the Wall of Whales with ticket stub...we were still charged $5.00 and were under the 3 hrs. This site also gives incorrect admission prices because we arrived at 4 p.m. and for 2 adults / 2 children it was $70.00 including the 3D IMAX. This site says $16 for adults and 9.50 for children...actual cost-$22.50 for adults / $17.50 for children not including IMAX (extra for IMAX). We would've at least expected a partial disco...view moreunt for arriving late, but no. The IMAX Whales & Dolphins 3D movie was interesting but the 3D parts actually left us having to close one eye and with a headache. We will not be returning and if you've been once you definitely do not need to go again. Look to Chattanooga's amazing aquarium or the new one in Atlanta, GA.view less

Amazing experience

I was taken here by my parents on a schoolday in the fall so it wasn't very crowded. As I understand it, it gets insane in the summer and on weekends. I'm not sure if I'd want to go then. I remember walking through the giant tube with the massive tank of every kind of fish imaginable. The sting ray exhibit alone was worth going for.

Don't visit on a rainy saturday

My family made the mistake of going on a rainy Saturday. The place was so overcrowded you could not see the exhibits let alone read about them. There were crying kids everywhere. Parents with strollers blocking the view. It was a terrible experience. I have been to several aquariums and this one is probably good if I could have seen the exhibits. If I return it will be during a school day and hopefully not so crowded. I Think the managers should come up with some form of crowd control.

fantastic

I live in Oregon...the free willy state...this aquarium puts the Oregon Coast Aquarium to shame. It is absolutely fabulous. I couldn't pick the best part...all of it was amazing. The white alligator, shark and sting ray tank, the amazon river....those fish are amazingly ginormous!

This place is a must see for everyone...even for those of us who live by an aquarium.

Walk or ride the street car trolly thing...enjoy the beautiful Mis'sippi river.

unbeleivable

What a geat place. You can go back many times and still not see it all. I never was really into fish until going to the Aquarium. Now I am hooked.

Alright

The aquarium was fine. You get to see huge sting rays, plenty of sharks, and a white alligator. There are some pretty interesting things to do like touch a shark and starfish. However there is one major fault, its really small and you can see the whole aquarium in less then one hour. Honestly, unless you are going as a family it is not worth the money or time.

UNDER THE SEA

AQUARIUM OF AMERICAS HAS A GREAT VARIETY OF SEA LIFE. THE SHARK FEEDING TIME IS MY FAVORITE. THE STINGRAYS ARE HUGE. AND IF YOU HAVE TIME STOP BY THE IMAX THEATRE, 3-D MOVIE THEATRE. IT'S WELL WORTH THE MONEY.
THERE'S ALSO SPECIAL PACKAGES WITH THE AQUARIUM, ZOO, AND IMAX.
