    We spend hours @ the Estuarium. Plenty of opportunities to get up close, even touch, the local wildlife! So educational, yet fascinating! The Sting Ray pool is a must-see & you can even hold a love horseshoe crab! All of the employees are super nice and ready to answer questions. We love this place! I just wish I had more pics on my phone to upload… there’s so many fascinating things @ the Estuarium that I cannot even begin to describe it throughly!

    What a great way to spend a few hours and learn about the ecology of the estuary. The facility is not large (it’s no Sea World or Atlanta Aquarium) but has a number of interactive exhibits that we really enjoyed. The only drawbacks were a few accuracy issues (a few items were mislabeled) but overall a great place. We got there by 9:30am on a Saturday and had the place to ourselves.

    I’m a bit partial to this place. I grew up on Mobile Bay and the Gulf Coast. I had to take my kids out to the Estuarium so they could see some of the neat things I learned about in Marine Biology class field trips to the Bay/Gulf. The Estuarium has some well thought out aquariums and displays, it has some touch tanks, you can get up close and personal to a horseshoe crab, hermit crabs and some rays and skates.We spent about an hour and a half there but we could have spent more time, we were hurrying through to catch the ferry.

    Several Exhibits were closed for cleaning, but over all everyone had a very enjoyable time and learned some new info on Alabama Sea Life.

    This place was huge. Considering it is one of the largest aquariums in the world there is so much to do. All the staff/ volunteers were very knowledgable and answered all questions. I would recommend this anyone who have yet to visit. Great place to spend a few hours. best ever.
