  • Really good place for children, might interest lots of adults as well. Has a big shark tank with a variety of sharks ranging from 1 to two meters. Other tanks quite good too, with displays of beautiful polyps and coral ecosystems.
  • A bit expensive. Parking fills up quickly during school break.
  • Nice aquarium with pedagogical exhibitions of fishes arranged by their area of origin.
  • Really cool aquarium!
  • Great aquarium, the food bar was closed, I don't know why. The aquarium has some great fish to see and very helpful people who work there, mind that their English is not to great so bring a dictionary or use Google translate
