It's not a "big city" aquarium but it is a nice one. Niagara Falls, NY needs a boost in it's economy and to update this aquarium so it's more modern. It's wheelchair accessible for the most part.

Small but nice aquiarum. It is small compared to other Aquariums, but that is also one of its better qualities.. I'll be looking forward to the updates and renovations in the middle of 2014. So, if you are expecting the Georgia Aquarium or even the New England Aquarium, you aren't getting something that size. What you ARE getting is a nice place to spend a couple of hours, with a pretty good amount of things to see, and , most importantly, an attraction that is easy to get around in for little kids or people with issues that make huge attractions a chore.

We were here on a one night stay over to see another show on the Canadian side of the falls. We don’t venture over to the US side very often, but decided to check out what was over there. This place is definitely tucked in out of the way, and you would never know that it was there unless you went looking for it but we were glad we did. When we first arrived, it just happened to be time for the harbour seal presentation just outside the front door. There is not a lot of interactive stuff going on, but lots to see and read. Learned a lot of new stuff, and we were also able to take in the sea lion presentation as well which was a blast. For what you pay compared to Marine Land this was way more worth it, even if it was a museum and not an amusement park. The fact that we paid half price made it even that much more enjoyable as we were there for almost 3 hours. My personal favourite exhibit was the poison dart frogs, which look so small and harmless with their colors but their ability to kill is amazing. Would definitely recommend this to people, but the earlier you get there the better as later in the afternoon it did start to get quite busy. We had to leave when some gentleman could not control his screaming child, for almost 10 minutes my ears just could not take it anymore. Although I didn’t get to take advantage of it, I thought the walking audio tour which only required a cellphone would have been quite interesting.

Small aquarium with a nicely assembled collection of regional fish (the lake sturgeon were huge) and other global marine specimens of interest including sharks, penguins, sea horses, an axolotl, and a stunning dragon fish. Great for kids, the sea lion show was very entertaining. A lot of effort has been put into making the displays informative, and the small size keeps it approachable. Really enjoyed our visit, took our family of four with two kids 12 and under about 1-1/2 hours to work through it and see the show. Located right across the street from the Discovery Center and part of the Discovery Pass, well worth the time.

We spent an hour or so there while we were visiting Niagara Falls - it was part of the discovery pass. I had looked it up online before we went, so I knew it wasn't a huge place, and I prepared my kids in advance. My sons ages 11 and 13 have seen any aquariums before, this certainly is on the small side, but they do a lot with what they have, and they seem to care a great deal for their animals. My sons love animals, so they were happy to see any animals while we were there - we loved the personal stories behind many of the animals, especially the seals. The exhibits are nice, and the magic show that we thought would be tacky was actually pretty good!

I visited from Florida with my family and had a nice vist. The shows are the highlight of the aquarium. My daughter especially liked the sea lion show on stage and appreciated the friendly trainer that spoke to her for a few minutes afterwards, with brown hair, I believe Carrie. We visit yearly and will return.
