9 Best Aquariums in Las Vegas (Top Aquarium Guide)

I’m an aquarium guy. I’ve been keeping saltwater aquariums off and on for the last 30 years. But I gave it up when we moved to Las Vegas.

We’ve been traveling quite a bit, and I figured it would be just too difficult to maintain an aquarium if we weren’t around all the time. So imagine how happy I was to discover that Las Vegas is home to some of the best and biggest aquariums in the country!

Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay

True to form, this Las Vegas aquarium is more than just a simple tank with fish. The Mandalay Bay aquarium is themed as an ancient temple that is slowly sinking into the sea.

Love, love, love this one! As an aquarium enthusiast, I could sit and watch the Aquarium at the Silverton Casino for hours.

Honestly, all that is cool enough, but there’s even more! Several times a day, Thursdays through Sundays, you can watch real live mermaids swimming in the tank with the fish!

This killer design is known as “The Tank” at the Golden Nugget Casino in downtown Las Vegas. It’s a swimming pool surrounding a 200,000 gallon shark aquarium with a waterslide running through the middle.
