I have been here with some other friends form all over the world, we have been impressed about how good it was. There are a lot of interactive games and laboratory where you can learn more. Personally I really like the big aquarium!

Very interesting and interactive experiences for all ages. Feeding of the fish and of the seals was fun - as was the outside playground. A good cafe on the top floor where we had an enjoyable lunch and views.
