The aquarium features a large fish tank with a tunnel that takes you underneath the water, so that you can see the sharks and other fishes swimming right above you - kind of being in the water without getting wet ;-) The rest of the aquarium is average, but you can spend an entertaining hour at least here. It is... More

Went there will an 8 year old & a teenager. Cost €51 for three of us (that was with discount vouchers). Staff at ticket desk course do with a little smile turorial! Took us 20 minutes to complete the tour. Basic & not interactive. Would not return & would not recommend for the money paid out.

It's not surprising and expensive. Don't need to go if you have one in you town or country. Look like a little bit old fashioned. Need to renew. Near harbour and a shopping mall.

A fairly large and diverse Aquarium with a lot of interesting information on the wildlife housed here. Having sharks swim right next to you and getting to watch fish all around you was a really lovely experience. Definitely recommend it, especially for families with kids.

Too busy, quick to walk around and very disappointing. It's the same price for the zoo which was a lot better and more to see.

On an unusual hot day, we decided to spend an hour or so cooling off and doing something fun for the kids. The aquarium was small but pretty well laid out. The kids, my husband and I all enjoyed the visit.

I enjoyed it. Maybe a little overpriced, but there are a lot of interesting species to see. And it really feels like u're walking on the seabed

Complete let down! I was expecting so much more, but it was worse than Aquariums in the UK. Wish I hadn't of wasted our money or time.

I really enjoyed there. You can see various fishes and read the information about it. Very interesting and beautiful. One of the biggest Aquariums I have ever visited. I guess it should be very interesting to the children.

We visited with 2 small boys aged 4 and 5 and 6 adults. It's quite expensive and would benefit from offering a family ticket I'm sure this would make it more appealling. Nevertheless it was very interesting with all the sea-life easily visible and we especially enjoyed the moving foot path whilst viewing from all sides and above- fantastic. As... More
