  • 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.
  • It was fun! I liked the seals
  • 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.
