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.

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.

It wasn't great. There is a pretty cool amount of animals but they haven't finished building a tank for dolphins yet. And most of the fish that they have aren't that amazing. We only spent like an hour there and only little kids would enjoy it.

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.

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!

Although the Aquarium of niagara is a small place you can tell the animals (who most have been rescued from the wild) are well taken care of. It is nice for small kids and they are putting in a new coral reef exhibit which they said should be running by the new year. FYI to all the ignorant people : the Aquarium is a NON-PROTFIT organization, which means they recieve NO funding from anyone not even the state. so maybe you should not complain about how they arent big enough for you unless you can donate money to expand the facility! anyways nice place even it is small. its an aquarium not an amusement park people its made to be educational and view fish not rides and plays.
