You get a feeling for the spirit of the place as soon as you step in: big souvenir shop. The entrance to the aquarium itself is absolutely overpriced. All you get to see after entering is a single small corridor with a few diseased fishes...More

It was freezing out on the beach in January so was nice to spend some time in the warm aquarium and discover the sea creatures. the price was a bit high though. Loved playing with the Seals (zeehonder) in the outside tank.

This is a relatively small aqaurium for a large price. I know of pet stores that have a larger collection and you can have a look for free. For little children this might be nice but overall I would not recommend it if you are...More

13 euros entrance fee for adults, and close to 10 for kids above 3. Over half of the aquariums were above eye height for my 6 year old or myself seated in a wheelchair. The video of the disappearing coral reefs is reality but also...More

I was surprised by the diversity inside, it's not very large, but very interesting to have a close look at some interesting animals. Parking in the neighbourhoud went well, but on sunny days I can imagine it's more difficult. With three young kids we needed...More

A nice little historical sea aquarium. As soon as you walk in the entry way you feel immersed an enclosed in to a quaint little sea world. The entry price is reasonable however if briefly glancing at tanks and displays it can be walked through...More

Quite expensive and very small. The habitats of the animals lack space and do not deserve a beauty award.

What is there to say? It is all a matter of taste. But I did not like the dark gloomy place. It is very small, cave like and to me not worth the money.

The only thing worthy of the visit is the sperm whale skeleton and petting tank otherwise it is nothing special. Almost €10 for an adult and €8 for a child. Plus, they charge for parking even during off season months when parking is free on...More

We visited in the middle of July and it was busy but still enjoyable. My mother and teenage daughter both enjoyed the visit. It is very small and we were there for less than an hour. Some interesting items in the shop.
