It's a great way to spend an afternoon and boasts a surprising number of species for its size. Expect to see everything in around 1 to 2 hours.

You can go through in about 30 minutes. It will be longer if you stay for the show. This is a small aquarium. I think it is best suited for children.

Tue Penguins are one of the first exhibits you see, they are to the right of the ticket counter. The Aquarium is home to African Penguins.
