  • Slight disappointment for the price, not much, too much virtual. So can be for an understanding and an initiation to the marine world....

  • It's really to be done. How to discover lots of information about the sea, oceans, water sports, marine animals..... While having fun. It's playful, innovative, modern. I will not give you the details of the activities because the ideal and to have the surprise, but it is everything but a traditional Museum. Big and small will have a great time. Strong feeling guaranteed for those who love, beautiful pictures, a great team of animators very available. try not to go there on a rainy day or for days of great affluence to enjoy it fully.

  • I advise you to go there a day of great sunshine, there will be almost no one and you can make a maximum of activities, all very interesting, without too many people in this very airy space.

  • Some great activities such as 5d movies and virtual reality surfing and diving amongst sharks. A bit of a wait though , even if not really packed. A good day out on a raining day.
  • This museum seems well-suited for people with families or for the young at heart. There are lots of interactive displays for all. They even have a 4d theater and virtual reality surfing. For me, it was the first time I've even worn VR goggles, and it was well worth the existence. Plus, you can get a package rate for Ocean City and the Aquarium which would make for a really fun weekend trip.
  • Amazing VR experiences! really enjoyed the visit and the kids loved it too!
  • If you're looking for a bowl to skate, it's pretty bad. The bowl is tilted and the coping is pretty bad. You could try to drop in on the walls, but it's really sketchy regarding the rocks Pretty cool visual spot though.
  • Fun place, it's good to take kids there, adults could like some of the activities there. The staff speaks lots of languages and very friendly. They have very interesting 3D film about nature, and other augmented reality games
