One of the coolest museums in Sarasota! Definitely one of the best aquariums in Sarasota
I actually went to the Mote Marine Laboratory when my fiance and I were looking for places to have our wedding. Although we ended up having our wedding somewhere else, they did have some great offerings. The Aquarium was small but they seem to do quite a lot for the Gulf Coast wildlife. I recommend checking it out if you are in the area.
Pros: Friendly staff, one of the best things to do in the Sarasota and Bradenton area for tourists.
