  • over 700 $ for a family of 5 is a lot of money. Thereof shall be paid parking, binoculars and even storage cabinets costs money. It is a great museum and great lineups of aquariums, but the style is a bit monotonous. I had expected that it was larger, such as the North Sea Museum.

  • Very good exhibition. The fish are fantastic Architecture is aesthetic bit the function suffers from bottlenecks. The stream of people doesn't flow well when the place is busy. Restaurant serves food of high quality but it is a bit pricey. Be warned that you exit through the gift shop. This is a nightmare with kids. The exhibits carries it to a good review
  • A very nicely done place where you can see and learn a lot. The live feedings are very interesting as they don't only feed the animals there but also explain a bit about them. Also the aquariums are extremely clean and some of them are quite big. We visited on a Monday afternoon, the place didn't seem to be too crowded, still it was quite noisy as some kids where quite loud. I'm not sure how noisy it gets when the place is really filled up with visitors. It seems like a good place to take your kids, as they had quite some fun there. It may not be optimal in case you prefer a rather quiet ambiance.
  • This is a neat place with some well done rooms. Marine life from around the world, including a nice East African Rift lakes display. A lot of info on sharks! Though many of the other exhibits could use some more expert information to showcase facts and emphasis on learning. It's mostly lists otherwise. If I were to make it better, that is what I would advise. If you see and read everything, it could take a couple hours. Room for improvement, but worth going.
  • Great fun. Lots to do. Good family day out. Good value annual pass.
  • If you've been here once, you have pretty much seen it all. It's probably a nice place to kids, to learn about different fishes / aquatic lives from around the world, and the giant aquarium is also entertaining to see, but there are not much events / activities / changes around here, and the entrance fee is quite pricey
