Under renovation as of now (I think so); no where compared to SEA World at Sentosa.... It needs a major overhaul to get it to global standards.....

A beautiful place for visitors of all ages. Clicking pictures is not allowed inside the museum but, it houses a lot of aquariums with all sorts of water dcreaatures which is a delight to watch. IT seemed as if the adults have also become kids once again :)
