“Not as child-friendly as it could be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

The tanks are too high, the explanations are so-so. Not my favourite aquarium, by any stretch. The foot stools provided for the kiddos do compensate somewhat, but don't hold your breath for something special. The big tank at the end is cool. The exhibit upstairs, with actual stuffed animals, gave my 3-year-old nightmares. The days of taxidermy are over. It looks a bit too much like a science classroom.

“Fishing for art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Unbelievable shapes and colors swimming for bewitched spectators in the ground flour aquariums... The mystery of dawn at all seasons revealed by the photo exhibit in the first floor.
A small museum: a great place...
