Smaller in size than the Aquariums in larger cities but there was a lot to see and read. Loved the sea lion show and spent the extra money to feed the harbor seals. They are going through a renovation for the penguin exhibit - can't wait to come back when it is finished. Staff was courteous and helpful at the entry and gift shop. Lots of great souvenirs.

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 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.

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.

This's a rip-off place.Not the shows or Not the penguins but to get in side they charge around $11.00. Specially the white women that look like 'susan powter' (shave head) is nothing but a lunatic who doesn't knows ABCD of customer service or courtesy.The way she talks to non-whites or other countries visitors is highly deplorable.Don't know who hired that White Pig...she's nuisance and disgusting!! We paid around $50 to get in side to watch the penguin feeding...but haven't seen any feeding or given any space to watch the feeding.When we asked the staff about the penguins....instead of helping us they're laughing at us...saying penguins might be hiding because of us. Such a dirty mind set staff and that look like 'susan powter' look are nothing but a disgrace to the Visitor Center like Aquarium. So People....Don't waste your Money!!

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.
