My Son turned 18 and wanted to go here for his birthday. I had not been there before but he had. We packed up the family and drove up to check it out. I loved it! There is a lot of information packed into a cool place with a lot to see and do. The central tank full of salmon, trout and sturgeon was fascinating. My youngest boy liked playing with the boats in the big water table modeled after the great lakes. The locks were really cool and actually work! We went through the whole thing twice. I will definitely go back!
I traveled with another adult to the town for the day and we choose three sites to go to for our first trip to the Duluth area. This was our second stop of our trip for the day. The first thing I noted was the cost of parking when you can park for free less than a block away. Park in a free lot near the building. The fee at the time was $14.00 per adult (less for kids). The stand was professional but only one or two people we could see there working. As a matter of fact no staff were avalible for question once you entered the main halls. I would estimate that about 35% of the videos, exsibits with animals, or interactive activites were closed or shut down. We were there for about an an hour and a half door-to-door. There was manybe two things that were really paying for but in the end I had to fight the person I was with not to request a refund for the lack of staffing, lack to open exsibits, and to be honest for the cost the amout there really was to see (two floors with no more walking space than a 3,000 squre foot house). I would say if you have very small kids 2-4 yrs old go ahead but other than that miss it for the price. Walk outside or go to a local hike and you can get just as much and some fresh air.
Our two boys (4 and 8) both loved Great Lakes Aquarium - and we found it interesting too. There's lots to see and touch for the little ones and many signs help you understand what you are looking at. Definately worth the stop!
You spend 14.50 just to get which at a good aquarium that would be worth it. However you could see everything in about 45 mins. They just got a seahorse which wasn't too bad but if that wasn't there you see see everything in about 30 mins. Iwould not recommend this aquarium to anybody.
For the size of the location they could have had whole lot more. I have to several aquariums around the country and this by far was a complete waste of time.I give thig location 2 thumbs down.
Oh as for the Bald eagle exhibit, it was too small for the bird to be comfortable. Look at the Zoo's Bald eagle exhibit and take a hint of it.
