We must have visited 20 different aquariums around the world as we like aquatic life and yet we were pleasantly surprised by the Fluvarium . It is small and simple but what makes it unique is that what you see is the bottom of a...More

Primarily a window into the river where you can see wild fish, but all the staff were very enthusiastic about explaining everything.

The exhibits are geared to kids 5-10. Less stuff to keep parents occupied. The view of the local stream is what is intriguing, but we were there are the wrong time of year for the fish. Its a good rainy day activity.

Since we were camped at Pippy Park, we could just walk over to the Fluvarium. It's all about water and fish and has some good displays and walking trails outside of it. Nice way to spend a few hours.

Interesting for a brief visit, maybe longer if u have young kids or want to spend some time walking around outdoor paths. Otherwise inside is not large, is informative regarding role of water, wetlands, River ecosystems.
