This aquarium has been established since 1957 or so. Each tanks are small...sad to see several creatures in the tight space. Especially, sea turtles. It was a heartbreaking. Hopefully they will make the creatures have better lives there.

Wonderful place. My kids really like the dolphin show and also they had a small amusement park which my kids enjoyed. It was not too far from town and only a short 5 minutes from the train station.

We were there during the week so it wasn't busy at all. Lots of school kids in uniforms. Aquarium itself has a outdated feel (sort of 70's) so this is definitely not one of those new facilities. Nevertheless our kids did enjoy it and that's...More
