  • I love this place. Fun for the whole family. Interactive, educational, easy to follow, well constructed and thought out. The way marine life is displayed and explained is great.
  • This Aquarium has a lot more than I thought it would, although the reviews say it’s small. It still has a lot of different creatures in it. The tanks are small and a lot of the fish swim in the same routine. Me and my partner decided to not support Aquariums any further
