Get a closer look at marine life at Galway Atlantaquaria, where interactive exhibits allow visitors to touch the tank's occupants.

The viewing window for the ocean tank glows blue and teems with life, and the ray pool allows you to slide your fingers across the creature's slick back.

  • I loved the trip to the aquarium. Appropriate for any age group, kids can get guided tours. I recommend it.  more »
  • If you’re thinking of coming here, don’t bother. My kids had seen everything in about 5 minutes. It was overcrowded, dirty, tiny & very expensive. Spend your money somewhere else.  more »
