Although we are retired and traveling just the two of us, it was clear that the families with kids were enjoying themselves a lot. It’s not a huge place, but lots of interesting exhibits.

It was a beautiful aquarium. Indoor and outdoor. It is also open all year round so you can enjoy it anytime you go. Kids loved it and we as adults also enjoyed it.

We really enjoyed ourselves. The walrus show was really funny and we loved the jelly fish displays. The ability to touch the rays and other aquatic stuff was great. We would definitely go there again.

This was more expensive than we had anticipated, and we were a little let down. It's SO crowded inside the pavilions that you really can't stop to enjoy anything. There are plenty of young arms and legs climbing on things and getting in the way,...More

We went there walking (our place was not too far and we were in the mood for walking). Google maps did a good job showing the way. To return we used Uber. It was rather easy for the driver.
