If your looking to spend time with your kids then this is the place to come. I was excited when I seen all the different kind of fish and seeing in person instead of tv. I really enjoyed it will be coming back
Lots to see. People are friendly and helpful. It isn't as expensive as you might think and besides you can always find a coupon in one of many coupon books. If you have't been before go...
Ripley's Aquarium was a wonderful place to visit they had all kinds of fish, sharks, jellyfish, seahorses, octopus, stingrays, electric eels, frogs, & many more things to see! This is a great place for anyone to visit! It has a moving walkway so you can just basically just stand in one place & move through it! They have a mermaid show but we didn't go to it! There are petting areas for horseshoe crabs & they let you touch a jellyfish! You can send as much or as little time here as you like! They have discount coupons in the books at The Welcome Center & The Hotels! Most places give Military discounts you will have to ask!

We live in Philadelphia, across the river from the fabulous Camden Aquarium, and our friends live in Baltimore which also has a spectacular Aquarium. So our bar is set high and our expectations for this rainy day activity were questionable. I'm a little amused at those who have described this place as pricey. Prices at Adventure Aquarium in Camden are exactly the same and you don't get a mermaid show, which the kids loved. This aquarium is every bit as well stocked and well presented as any we've been to from Florida to Mystic Conn. It's a super way to amuse the kids on a rainy day... and don't be surprised if you love it too.
