    The aquarium is small, overpriced and crowded. Just few exhibitions. It took me 30 minutes to see all of the attractions. We didn't see the show though.

    Underwhelming - it was small and crowded. You can go through it in less than an hour. Maybe once the Sandy repairs are done, it will get better...

    So many different sea animals. Some exhibits make you feel as if you were in the water with them. They also have shows, and kids can watch the seals being fed. A great place to stop when in Brooklyn. Plus, the beach is right there as well as the amusement parks, so if you want to spend the whole day and night in Coney Island, make sure you add this as well.

    Took my young niece there during the summer and we had a blast. She enjoyed all the shows and even got to touch sea lion. Though she had fun I was a bit disappointed as to what they had on display. From what I understand budget cuts have hurt as well as Sandy.

    I hope once Coney Island is restored the Aquarium will return to its past grander.
