Small. You walk into this rainforest type area - it is very slippery and dark. Ended up having to use my phone as a torch?! There rest of the exhibition is very small - nothing like your typical SeaLife Aquarium. Wouldn't say it is a must see

The aquarium is rather small. It our two year old loves it! He was glued to the big aquarium with sharks and rays and especially the tunnel where he was sitting looking at the marine wildlife. He was not that fond of the rainforest with the thunder and rain. More fun for adult though. There is a small cafe where... More

Ok, ok. What? Carrot cake at an aquarium? Yes. And it was just one of many sweet offerings at the cafe. Have it. Try it. Then sit back and enjoy the spectacular view. What about the aquarium? It's ok. What they have they do VERY well. They just don't have very much. The tropical rain forest exhibit was spot-on (it... More

I hate to put this place down as I am sure they do good work and since it does have something to offer but it is simply too small. Especially if you have younger kids, they can easily run through it all in literally 10-15 minutes. There's a little rainforest, sharks, sting rays, a few spiders and frogs and then... More

The aquarium was good a fair amount of fish and sea life but it was small but as it near Skansen and the ABBA museum it's worth doing if you have the time but I wouldn't be too disappointed if you miss it

An ideal place to introduce youngsters to life under the oceans. We took a four year old and a two year old and they both thoroughly enjoyed it. The sea horses are an absolute delight, but the most stunning tanks were the jellyfish, performing their almost hypnotic dance - Has to be seen to be believed. Look out for the... More

Here you get to see a variety of sea life, some of them you might have seen while some you might not have. Good for kids too. They have an amazing cafe inside the museum.

Very simple but enjoyable. the rain forest attraction whilst small was quite nice Should of been larger and a few of the aquariums were dark so struggled to see the attraction. The sewer attraction and the aquarium that kids can climb into was excellent for my 5 year old

This is a marvellous place to take young children of 5years to 15 years of age. The so-called Jungle experience is incredible, where you can physically experience the humidity,heat, storm,rain thunder and lightning and at the same time be very close to living fish. Our grandchildren wanted to go back several times. Then there are the fish tanks, with sharks,and... More
