it was like entering another world , so soothing watching all the different species of fish . I could have stayed all day hypnotised by the ocean tank. Staff were really helpful and informative . A wonderful place to bring the kids

A good place to go with kids. The aquarium itself is small but with young children I'd imagine you could spend quite a while there. There are feeding times and talks everyday. Admission isnt too pricey and there are deals for familys.

I wrote about the aquarium in another post, thinking I was speaking about the Atlantaquaria. This is a nice way to spend a cold or rainy day.

My niece wanted to go to this aquarium. I enjoyed it as well. We were there to see the staff feeding the fish and that was fun. There were a few of us listening to the guide and he seemed to enjoy talking to us....More
