If you're going to it thinking it will be a big place like the natural history museum in the city then you'll be very disappointed. It took about an hour to walk around the entire place and see everything. Food court was subpar as my burger was burnt to a crisp. School cafeteria lunches are better. Overpriced too. The best parts of the entire place were the shark tank, feeding the stingrays, and the sea lion show. Everything else was tiny and barely present. If you're thinking about going, do this instead, take the train to nyc and go to a museum there. It'll cost you about the same price and you'll get more for your money.

the aquarium is beautiful with lots of things to do, we all loved the salt marsh (free) and the butterflies (extra). I am not sure if others on this list go to the bronx zoo or ny aquarium but you have to pay to park at those facilities and it costs about the same to get in any recreational place. there are tanks where the kids can touch animals and wonderful shows. If you enjoy animals it is a must see on Long Island

My wife and I were staying in Southampton following a week long holiday in Manhattan (We're from Northern Ireland). We stopped off at this aquarium on one of our days touring the North Fork and I'm very glad we did. My wife, who normally hates being dragged to museums etc., thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We spent around 2 hours exploring the various exhibits, learning from the employees and simply relaxing. Well worth a visit if you're in the area. I can only imagine the negative reviews are from people who a) expected too much or b) don't have any particular interest in sea life or animals.

Enjoyable. But not honestly worth the admission price..Especially during the winter months. Defiantly a trip worth saving for the summer months.

I was quite disappointed with this aquarium. Everywhere you walked, they were trying to upsell you for a different feature and my kids kept pestering to spend more then the exorbitant entrance fees. The shows were very lame and boring. The Brooklyn, Camden, and Baltimore aquariums are far more entertaining.
