Plan an entire day here to see the exhibits. Have lunch in the Oceanographic rooftop cafeteria. Remember to visit the gift shop. Videos come out clearly of the aquarium tanks.

Of course you could walk everywhere if you wish, but it's a long distance. You're better off taking the bus 1 or 2 until casino.
