It might be small but the sea animals they have there are very impressive. We watched and participated in a shark feeding and also saw a turtle feeding. Lots of fun fish to see. My 2 year old had a great time!

We had a Brief stop as a port of call in Key West on our way to Costa Rica and decided to try out the Aquarium as it is one of the few things we have never seen. Well worth the visit.
