    This is a really nice little aquarium with lots of informative displays, I've marked it down because it cost nearly 50 dollars for a family of four and really doesn't take much more than an hour to do...  more »

    While not the most diverse aquarium, Huntsman is a perfect intro for young kids (8 and under) to learn about tide pools, marine life, seals and rays.  more »

    Not the largest but unique . Admission a bit pricey but surely going to a good cause, education and research.

    My kids really enjoyed the hands on marine exhibits! Would return again.

    Cool center but floors are very slippery and dangerous

    Of course “discovery” is a code word for “children’s”—maybe 25% of the space is just a playroom. The variety of sealife in the aquariums were limited (and as in all aquarium it seems, were largely mislabeled). The touch tank contained only perhaps 6 or 8 species. About 1/2 the exhibits concentrate on aquaculture, but don’t go into adequate detail (on the scope, variety, and techniques) to adequately cover the subject of aquaculture in Nova Scotia.
