We were looking for something to do on a day that was supposed to rain all day. There was fair number of people, but we were able to walk right up to the ticket window, buy our tickets, and walk right into the aquarium. As aquariums go, this one doesn't compare to the ones in Baltimore or Boston, but it was entertaining enough. This was also the first place I've seen shark rays so that was cool. We especially liked the glass tunnels through the tanks - they offered an unusual perspective. Our 10-year-old also enjoyed the many opportunities to touch some of the inhabitants. When driving to the aquarium, follow the directions on their website and don't be tempted to follow road signs from the highway or you'll find yourself picking your way through downtown streets instead of being delivered directly to the parking garage. The aquarium is at Newport-on-the-Levee, a lively public square with shops and restaurants. Allow yourself some time to enjoy it, too.
