  • Some great activities such as 5d movies and virtual reality surfing and diving amongst sharks. A bit of a wait though , even if not really packed. A good day out on a raining day.
  • This museum seems well-suited for people with families or for the young at heart. There are lots of interactive displays for all. They even have a 4d theater and virtual reality surfing. For me, it was the first time I've even worn VR goggles, and it was well worth the existence. Plus, you can get a package rate for Ocean City and the Aquarium which would make for a really fun weekend trip.
