The aquarium and zoological museum are very interesting and both have a good collection. The section all about coral is very interesting. But as a university museum, it is much more of an old school academic museum than a modern hands on experience, so may...More

I'm not much of a museum fan, but this one was quite interesting. The aquariums were pretty nice, looking at some weird fishes is always fun. On the top floor were skeletons and taxidermized(?) animals, like apes, (big) cats, birds and other animals. The place...More

Visited only the aquarium which is maintained by the University Zoology Dept. An informative collection including useful statistics on species vulnerability where data exist.

Went to see the shark. It was tiny and I thought missing in action until others informed me that I had simply turned my head in the wrong direction when I passed the open tank.

We spent a nice afternoon at the aquarium on a rainy day and very much enjoyed the aquarium and zoological museum. My young daughter, who loves all things animal, had the best time naming all the creatures and then learning the names in French.
