Very nice large aquarium. Also very crowded! They offered a dolphin show - such as you would see at Marine World in the US. Large grounds could easily have spent half a day here.

For the paid exhibit areas, one will need at most 2 hours. The big aquarium with the giant whales is a must to see though. Wait for their feeding time and you will be awestruck. You will probably spend more time outside the paid area...More
