this is a small acquarium that also caters for sick fishes. Nice but small. You can spend two hours there.

This Sea Life is bigger than those we have visited in Germany and the outdoor part gives a nice different perspective. The entrance process should be improved since we had to wait on a line even after buying the tickets online. - By the way,...More

It was a real disappointment, there is no animation, staff unfriendly, we bought the tickets and stayed there at most 2h. There are no animal shows, a real disappointment.More

If you accept that places like this won’t be cheap to visit as they are expensive to run, then it’s definitely worth going to. Sure, there aren’t that many exhibits, but there is still enough to occupy at least a couple of hours, and the...More

In Belgium you can find a lot of discount coupons. It's ideal when the weather isn't that good. I really loved this one and their small shop !
