  • Lovely aquarium not much to see but has a nice theme, the restaurant is decent but i recommend the nearby restaurants outside the aquarium
  • Very nice aquarium. Especially the big aquarium with shark's, manta's, and many others is a great view. You can have a nice afternoon here, kid's will have a great time gazing at all the fish and sea life in the different aquariums.
  • Excellent place for 3-5 year old children. We had a blast. Very nice shark tank.
  • Very nice Aquarium, good layout and lots to see, but a bit pricy
  • Lot of exotic animals from different countries! Definitly worth it
