Wonderful experience for my two grandkids! They have a nice variety of displays and a great hands on area! Unusual fish close up and a nice play area for kids! Will definitely take them back as they lived the Nemo and Dory fish!!

The volunteers who work there are mostly young children. It's nice to see how interested they are in the fish and their enthusiasm when explaining what you're looking at.

Probably OK for little ones, but wouldn't keep the attention of children much over the age of 8 unless they have never before been to an aquarium.

A nice end to the day. The kids loved touching the turtles and horseshoe crabs. Scavenger hunt for the seahorse and frogs. Seeing the baby shark swimming inside the egg was cool!

This is a very small, student driven facility They're very dedicated and happy to tell you about the marine life in thier facility It's going to offer great views for the average size cold of 6 to 13ish Important to know - this is a high school student project site Around 15 modest wall tanks, 2 larger center tanks, one where you can touch 2 crabs It's not glamorous, but VERY interesting If you're in the area, it's a great centerpiece of a Hendersonville downtown shopping experience Wonderful to see the student's excitement at the opportunity to learn and be the teachers, too!!!
