This aquarium is good for families and and kids. It's a small place with limited displays. Also not very pocket friendly.

Took my twin 5 year grand daughters here last month, our 2nd visit they love it racing from tank to tank trying to spot the fish especially the zebra fish Nemo and now of course Dory. Reasonable snack bar food a bit basic.

Our children (11, 8) both enjoyed the aquarium and the diverse exhibits. It's a small aquarium (in comparison to others we've been to in New Orleans, Hull, London) and cost €52 for the four of us. I think for the size and quality the price...More

With the rain pouring down we decided this would be a nice option. The displays were well marked with some English. Lots of children. Healthy looking tanks, I have visited a lot of aquariums and this one was nice.
