Wonderful Key West Aquarium!Flag review
What a great aquarium in Key West! We brought our little ones (3 & 5 years old). The coolest part is that you can get up close and personal to the marine life - handle starfish, crabs and the kids fed the nurse sharks! The staff was incredibly friendly and answered everyone's questions about the marine life. We definitely recommend this place - well worth a visit!

Great place to spend a rainy or hot afternoon. The tanks are full of the same fish you see out on the surrounding reefs. You can even pet a shark. I really love the hands on tank where you can pick up sea urchins, Conchs, star fish etc. Bring the kids or just be one.
