The aquarium has many species of fish on show and if you are patients enough to wait for feeding times you get the best experience.

Been to many aquariums and this is a good one. Clean and well organized. A little confusing inside as to path to follow. Display of fish is great. Lot to look at. Took about 2 hour.
