There, you have it all in the title. Only go there if you have kids and it’s raining so you can’t go out. This aquarium really has nothing special. The tanks are not clean. The small ones are barely accessible when it’s crowded. And the...More

Beautiful, lots of fish. But a bit small and very expensive. Our 2 year old boy could not enjoy It, so we were outside in half an hour again.

This is a really good aquarium as well as being clean, modern and well looked after. We visited on a hot day and were pleasantly surprised by the air conditioning (stops the glass from steaming up). If you like looking at exotic fish you will...More

Made a visit on a rainy afternoon to pass a couple of hours. A little dissapointing. Pretty basic aquarium with lots of small tropical fish and not enough of the bigger beasts. No external attractions.
