  • E after J 3歳の子供と訪れました。 海に面した絶好のロケーションで、建物はとても広く、展示物も非常に見やすいです。特に随所に階段式のベンチがあったりして、ゆっくり見ることもできます。 イルカショーも室内のため、雨の心配もなく、アシカショーも工夫が施されていて楽しいです。また子供連れにはうれしい、アスレチック(小学生未満)があり、トイレもすべて障害者用トイレにおむつを捨てるボックスや、ビニ...  more »

  • Nice aquarium with a lot of different exhibits. There is a lot of interesting things for smaller kids as well. It does get a little busy during the holidays, but that is to be expected.
  • The aquarium was interesting only because it offers a behind the scenes tour of the facility which offered good insight into how much care these animals need. It's sad because it's obvious that aquariums, zoos, and other places that place animals in captivity is sad and dangerous. I won't be going again to this or any other aquariums.
  • Nice aquarium! Has a dolphin show. Lots of sharks. Some rare sea creatures.
  • Excellent place for children. They will definitely love it. Grown ups will enjoy too. People enjoy dolphin show here. Only negative point is that it is against animal rights.
  • Great aquarium for family outings. There are plenty of activities for children and adults alike.
