Fodor's Review

With more than 10 million gallons of water, this wildly popular attraction is the world's largest aquarium. The 604,000-square-foot building, an architectural marvel resembling the bow of a ship, has tanks of various sizes filled with more than 80,000 animals, representing 500 species. The aquarium's 6.3-million-gallon Ocean Voyager Gallery is the world's largest indoor marine exhibit, with 4,574 square feet of viewing windows. But not everything has gills: there are also penguins, sea lions, sea otters, river otters, sea turtles, and giant octopuses. The 84,000-square-foot AT&T Dolphin Tales exhibit includes a 25-minute show (reservations required). Hordes of kids—and many adults—can always be found around the touch tanks. Admission includes entry to all public exhibits, shows, and galleries. Ninety-minute behind-the-scenes tours start at $59.95. There are often huge crowds, so arrive early or late for the best chance of getting a close-up view of the exhibits. Try to buy your tickets at least a week ahead. Online ticketing is best, with discounted rates and emailed tickets you can print out at home.
