I've been too most aquariums having a little one obsessed with sea animals! My son loved it and so did we! A little pricey but it doesn't disappoint! Amazing floor to ceiling tanks and u get some amazing views of the sharks, stingrays etc!

Took a friend and two children. Children found it interesting but especially liked the big tank. It was a quiet day so that had time to easily see all the exhibits.
