The place is really cool. A lot of animals living in their own ecosystem. Is not expensive and you can enjoy the trip with your kids

Visited in the morning with not a lot of people so we could enjoy our time and check every single thing they had! Was a little bit disappointed just before the finish because i left with a feeling that the aquarium is not at its full potential. Nevertheless, we had a really great time exploring it!

It is fairly cheap, and there is a discount for students- providing a student card is shown. The inside of the aquarium was lovely, there were so many different species of fish. the descriptions about them were written in both English and... More

Best aquarium I've ever been to! Everything is designed perfectly, and every type of fish you can imagine is probably in there. My faves being the sharks and the turtles. As you enter, you are in a tunnel surrounded by jellyfish, which is really cool. This is appropriate for all ages, not just children. Definitely have a visit here!

So did I. They truly believed the lift at the start had taken them underwater and who was I to spoil their fun, I pretty much believed it myself. Easily the best aquarium I have visited, so many fish so much information, a huge amount of interactive activities for the children to play with even with all the fish surrounding... More
