Interesting exposition, great fishes, nice colors, but toooooooo many people- hardly can get close... shows suggested were low class
So much to see! So much information! We spent many hours there, all of us enjoying the experience from our youngest (10) to our oldest - me (52). There were many different species of aquatic life, many in HUGE aquaria. There was no need to hurry round - you could spend as much or as little time as you liked... More
All my family liked this aquarium. We were happy to see the good care about it's inhabitants. Clean glasses, nice healthy fish and other creatures created best memories.

This delivered far more than we expected. There was so much to see, with the audio guides you could listen to as much or as little as you wished. Excellent value for money. We spent two hours in and would definitely go back for another look.
Really well constructed public aquarium. Lots to see. Not as expensive as UK public aquariums, with similar range of species. Shark tank is amazing. Worth the entrance fee.
