Interesting Aquarium and fun to walk around its not as big as I expected, I went mid week so it was very quiet which made it easier to navigate, it's a bit smaller then expected

If you are local this is great wet weather place for the children. Not only do you get to see all the marine life but there are activities which my daughter loved. Lots of things to keep them entertained for a few hours.

Didn’t think there was a lot to see really. I remember it seemed bigger last time. Guy taking money at start was not helpful or even polite.
