Now closed and Converted into a "Reptilarium"
May 2017 • Family
After 33 years the marine aquarium has closed and the building is under new stewardship, it is now a Reptilarium and houses an exhibit of live reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates, the four rooms have been converted into themed biomes including a desert room, rainforest room, turtle temple with 18,000 litre terrapin sanctuary and a nocturnal room. hopefully trip advisor will consider giving the reptilarium its own page.

Visited this Aquarium on holiday with my ex boyfriend last year (2015), it's very small and quite a lot of money considering. The fish were really cool though it just needs a refurbishment and more tanks to be worth wile. Enjoyed our visit however.

Sadly this is now closed.

Intelligent people loved this small but very specialist aquarium, with mainly UK specimens, rather than exotic creatures from other shores. For those who have a love of UK nature and wanted to find out about the hidden ecology off the Island, it was the ideal place to go. For parents who want to give their kids a real education, this is a great loss to locals and visitors. Still worth visiting Fort Victoria, have a walk round the woods, see the Fort and have a cup of tea, enjoy the model railway and the other attractions.

Sadly it's closed for good after 31 years

There is still the model railway there but sadly we didn't have time to visit.

There is also a cafe on site which is open

Very small aquarium
Oct 2015 • Family
We recently visited the aquarium whilst on holiday. It cost us £7 to get in for 2 adults the baby was free. It has a range of sea creatures and mostly found off the shores of the island itself. Be warned its small it takes all of 10/15 mins to walk the whole thing but I was aware of this and wanted to give my baby a treat of seeing fish ect which he loved. Staff friendly and helpful And the nature park it's set in is a real find a lovely area to walk take in the sea air and views and watch the boats go by.

This aquarium is very small and shows various fish, crabs and a few other things. We were able to walk round it within 10mins. I would recommend spending your money elsewhere.

Total Rip Off
Oct 2015 • Family
It cost £3.50 per adult,it lasted all of 10 minutes and that's because we doodled for 5 minutes,to get our monies worth.
You'd see more at a aquatic shop and it's free.
Not worth the visit.

If your into fish, a must visit

As a fisherman I really enjoyed their exhibits, so many different types of fish, rays, sharks to name but a few, and to see them alive in their own environment
