Allow some time as there is loads of reading information and 3 movies you can watch. We enjoyed it - our 6yr old also enjoyed it, but did complain that we took so long. The last time I visited was 20 yrs ago - the shark on ice looked much scarier back then :)

Found it very interesting just wish we hadn't of taken the two small children with us as so much fact to read but very hard with two boys getting restless (as boys do when you're trying to read anything other than a book for them). Will def visit a second time just individually without the kids.

My partner and I walked passed and saw the sign shark and whale expo and thought it would be fun and educational to walk around and have a look. Oh how wrong we were. As some of the other reviews have mentioned it's just an egotistical trophy displaying individuals take on Great Whites. Shark trophies galore and attempts at the... More

A little frightening for my 2 young children, wasn't really aware of what was inside, very interesting for the adults but the children were keen to leave after 20 mins.

If you truly hate those evil, nasty sharks that have been patrolling our oceans for millennia and really want to stick it to them, then handing your cash to Vic Hislop is a fantastic opportunity. Read all about how dastardly beasts such as the mighty Great White and Bull sharks are just waiting to get you the second you step... More

Visiting Vic Hislops Shark Show is an absolute must for those who have any interest in Sharks. I learned so much from the show and you can even get up close and personal to a Frozen Great White.

If you like seeing an egotist displaying his kills and whom has no respect for our wild sea life, this is the place for you?????? I will admit I would never had step foot in the place, had I not been provoked, for I have no time for this man at all. So this comment is bias.

The shark exhibit is what most would call ordinary, but if you stop and read many of the articles on the walls you will be astonished at the sort of events that have taken place between humans and sharks. The massive shark there on display is a real shark, it's just frozen in a big block of ice and truly... More

Today I went to the shark show with my parents and my partner and first and for most the smell that some people are complaining about was not present at all in fact I counted over 5 air fresheners so it was good to see they took notice of what people where saying. I found it was a very interesting... More
