The whole centre is located by the seaside. The building were clean and strategically located. The price of the ticket is quite pricy as the three sections ie the discovery world, the aquarium the IMAX Cinema does not offer value for money compared to the price of the ticket. The IMAX Cinema charge very high for just 45 minutes 3D... More

We went here with some friends who had kids and were actually able to enjoy ourselves. The imax was showing a film on Kenya which was very well done. We all had fun playing with sound, color and light in the discovery center. The aquarium was decent and interesting enough for young kids. Overall, if you're looking for a place... More

There was a range of animals on display, but I felt at times descriptions or even names of the different species was not present, or animals were wrongly identified. Had two younger children with us, who enjoyed the experience (going here would... More
