The views from the Fluvarium itself are beautiful. The exhibits are breathtaking to be able to view it underground and view the fish.

Geared more toward primary school children/s curriculum, and as excellent enrichment programs for summer day camps, nevertheless, worth a visit with visiting families, or grandchildren.

Visited as part of a tour whilst on a cruise. Whilst interesting this attraction did not entirely WOW us but may be more suitable for young people as an educational resource. It is limited but definately highlights one particular ecological aspect of the environment. .

The flivarium was overpriced considering you can get through it in 30-45 minutes, however it's a nice concept and my kids who are into fishing enjoyed it. Interesting underwater windows.

Not much to see. There just were not many fish in the viewing area. Maybe wrong time of year. Expected more info on water but just not much there.
