Great educational day out. We took our 3 year old daughter for a visit and she loved looking at all the butterflies and shells and the aquarium. It is varied and well laid out. We thought the exhibits were exceptional and a lot of effort...More

typical continental aquarium, and museum, full of scary insects and stuff. Large pool with a real sea lion, reasonably priced with a free car park.

Definitely not worth the 9 Euro (Adult) entry fee. Firstly, the seal they have on display. The water is really mucky and dirty, they have two small windows to look into the tank which is pointless as you cannot see. The tank is far to...More

Really poor, grotty and old fashioned. The aquarium section is a distraction from a collection of bizarre shell sculpture's straight from a 70's low budget movie. We didn't see the sea lion, probably more to do with the dish water it had the misfortune to...More

This is one of the stranger aquariums i have been too. The highlights are not the fish but the shell designs and sculptures. And the pictures made out of semiprecious stones. It was very odd, but it made us smile. Our toddler enjoyed the sealion...More

Thank you for your message. We will never have clear water because the pond is fresh water in a closed circuit and Marco relieves himself. Water is filtered 24H / 24 and partly renewed every day. It is hardly chlorinated to avoid damaging the eyes...More

To call this place an aquarium is a bit misleading. Yes it does have a number of fish in tanks, but they are a small proportion of the exhibits. The whole venue appears tired and dirty but the seal-lion tank is horrific. Green water and...More

We spent only about 1.5 hours here but all the family really enjoyed it - being a little different from just a small aquarium. It was also raining so a good place to stop while in Granville. The actual aquarium is quite small but good....More
