Nice place to have lunch but the venue as an "institute" is a bit lacking. Not much of interest and the "shark cage" must be seen as a joke (repeating video of sharks coming at you while you stand in a fake "cage"). The 3D...More

It's a nice place to go on a rainy day. We didn't eat at the restaurant there but it looked good. I would take a cab if you're staying at the Hamilton Princess. It was about a 20 min. walk.
