A good aquarium for families, nice and interesting. There are some activities also for the kids - one was a fish coloring station and then the kids see their own fish swim on screen). The tunnel is beautiful and the whole space is recommended.

It’s a great activity for a rainy day, a convenient location, the kids had a great time. The tunnel was long with the sharks and rays, my 4 year old was amazed and excited and the interactive tank took my 8 year olds breath away.
