  • I've been meaning to go here for a while and we finally got a chance. Both of the children really enjoyed themselves, there was a bit of a line to get in but it moved fairly fast, we looked at all the tanks, we watched some short films, and had some snacks. The only issue we had we're all the strollers inside that made it difficult to move around at times other than that it was a really good family experience.
  • If you’re looking for an indoor activity a visit to an aquarium is always a good idea. The aquarium isn’t the largest one I’ve visited so far. Within an hour I stood back outside of the building feeling a bit underwhelmed. Not recommendable if I’m honest, but on rainy days it gives you something to do.
  • Its a nice place to go with kids or even for a date if you like fishes. They do feed the sharks in the afternoon. Fun visit!
  • Exotic fishes but very expensive and ends quickly.
  • Ok if you want to learn more on local fishes but nothing compare with the aquariums we used to visit in North America like the one in Toronto, Quebec City or Boston. Be good for young children. Best time to visit: Monday afternoon during school time.
