Whatever you do, stay away from the aquarium in Key West! You pay $9 per person, and all it's just one big room! You literally walk in the door, stand in the middle of the room, spin in a circle, and you've seen the whole place! Of course Key West also has the coolest "aquarium" I've ever been to--diving on Looe Key .

The Baltimore Aquarium is the best I've been to, but I haven't been to many different ones to judge. I'm going to volunteer there as soon as my wife gets a full time job (she's student teaching). They take certified diver volunteers to feed the sharks and rays! I'll probably just be helping maintain the tanks though.

Wouldn't they give the sharks heartburn? ;)

The National Aquarium in Baltimore, Very cool.


Someday I want to get to the Moterey bay one, hear it's awesome.

Also heard great things about the Tennesee Aquarium. World's largest FW aquarium. http://www.tnaqua.org/

Oddly enough, I also saw a neat one in Minnesota, inside the Mall of America! Not very big, but neat stuff. Biggest snapping turtle I've ever seen!

Sounds like California has all the cool aquariums. Speaking of small ones though. The Bass Pro Shop at Concord Mills Mall in North Carolina. Has a Good Sized tank that's supposed to be a replica of NC Freshwater Lake. It was cool had ducks on top and Bass and all sorts of stuff in it. Ripley's at Myrtle also has a stingray petting zoo, I didn't even know you could touch those things but it was incredible. Or maybe there's some you can't touch still. Slimy things though

I too love the Baltimore aquarium. The Ripley's one is really great, too. I visited Atlanta a couple of years ago and was dismayed to learn that they had no aquarium. A big city like that ought to have one! If you go to the keys definitely don't spend money on visiting an aquarium - hop in the water with yer snorkel!
