    Very good location, with exhibitions and demos that makes kids and adults happy. Learning is everywhere. It is unfortunate that the water playground is not that big and not all items were working making the few working busy and crowded. I suggest a little bit more organization

    I do agree with most reviews that this aquarium is okay comparing it to Ripley's or the aquarium in Boston. I did find the grounds and gardens quite beautiful but I find the actual aquarium a little ho hum. I do wish the marine animals had more space. The walrus did seem happy

    Our hotel was close by so we chose to visit, the first things you see are the jellyfish and honestly the exhibition is excellent and we spent quite some time there. The other floors are somewhat less interesting although the sea horses are well exposed. There are areas for
