Perched on top of the cliffs in an impressive building it provides an excellent insight to the oceans and oceanography along with a spectacular aquarium, with plenty of multilingual interactive services. A trip to the roof terrace gives some spectacular views. Well worth a visit.

Of course you could walk everywhere if you wish, but it's a long distance. You're better off taking the bus 1 or 2 until casino.
