    A lot smaller than I thought it was gonna be. I think it'd be great for kids but it literally took us about 15 minutes to see it all.

    The Florida Aquarium is one of the smallest aquariums I have been too, but what it lacks in quatity it makes up in quality. I especially enjoyed their Wetlands Trail with the otters and the pythons.

    Great place to spend time with the family! If you have a big family, get the annual pass for 7. The water playground is a great surprise for the little ones and a perfect way to cool off on hot summer days.

    I always have a good time with my son here. He loves the water outside. The new exhibit is pretty cool, although I could have lived without the hissing cockroaches.

    Florida Aquarium is located in Tampa, an hour from Anna Maria Island. The aquarium is a favorite spot for families and lovers of sea life.

    First to Review

    It had some great exhibits. It is probably a great place to bring your kids as they have an pool/play area that was mobbed and lots of screaming/laughter.

    In comparison to other aquariums, I thought it was a bit lacking on info/descriptions.

    I did also sign up for the dolphin tour and we saw one or two dolphins, which wasn't much, but it was nice to be out on the water for a couple of hours

    Really nice aquarium. Not the biggest I've seen, but still big with a good variety. Love the freshwater exhibits.

    It is a place worth seeing at least once. The prices are too high for what is offered to make return trips.

    Not the best aquarium, but not bad. Over priced for what it is.
