Our kids especially like the seals. You can touch/hold some of the animals-- horseshoe crab, rays. Unsure if I'd bring anyone over 12. Two hours is plenty of time to see it all.

It's not that big but kids will definitely enjoy it. A good place to spend a rainy afternoon. It's big enough for them to get a good overview but not too big to wear them out.
