The aquarium is rather small, but it's still a good place to spend 20-30 minutes on a rainy day. Go outside when it's sunny.

This is not your exotic and colourful Sea World experience, this is about learning about the Finnish fish, the Baltic Sea, rivers and lakes in Finland, and about their ecosystem, plants and animals. Now that this common mistake is settled ;) I can warmly recommend...More
