  • We have been here with boys of 7 and 9 years who found it very nice! Nice sea aquariums and seal show. Also the fishing cq nuts museum outside is very nice with old shipbuilding crafts where in the children concerned are to participate. Well worth a visit.

  • An absolutely fantastic place for experiences, playing and learning, a place where time flies and children have the option of expansion if it is on the playground or in the Aquarium and, not least, a journey through the story.

  • After attending the 1995 created Colossi was people by the sea in the fishing and Seefahrtsmuseeum opposite. A very tidy and thematically ineressantes Museum.Lebewesen in the Nordseesehr exciting. Oil production in the North Sea, a great made exhibition. Beautiful aquariums and exciting seal feeding. Many statements also in German.
