“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

I wont go as far to say that my familys visit was unenjoyable, Its just that for the price you pay, there just isn't enough to see or do.

I'm not sure what i really expected, but certainly more than i got. I've probably been spoilt by visiting bigger and better sea life centres.
Dont get me wrong, it's worth a visit, just make sure it's not the only reason you're visiting and line up plenty more to do afterwards.

“Not worth a special trip”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

Very small with few exhibits - it's not worth a special trip but OK if you're already in Birmingham and visiting the ICC or NIA
