Extremely average. Some good exhibits. Dolphin show was below average. We waited 25mins for it to start and then when it did it wasn't that wonderful. The dolphin show in Madrid is much more exciting!

This has got to be the best aquarium ever. You need to spend a whole day there to see everything. The dolphin show is the highlight but there's birds, penguins, fish and sharks galore. A really great day out.
