    This is a wonderful aquarium that will take you back in time to the 1930s -- built with government funds during the Depression to help the economy (sound familiar?) and it even has 1930s murals.

We also got bought the discounted tickets to the shipwreck museum, which I recommend you do if...Read More

    I like that we used our tickets for two day so that worked out great. The place is small and dingy, but it was one of the fun things for my six year old on his birthday. l did not like the trees right up in my face on the outside.

Go but pretend this is 1935 and an amazing aquarium has just opened!
