We went here during a week day thinking it would be quieter, we were very wrong. There were many school trip groups which was very noisy and very cramped inside the building.

The admission fees were very pricey and I definitely wouldn't spend that much again without a discount voucher as only in there for an hour.

Negatives aside, the fish and sea creatures are displayed and kept well in various themed tanks and areas. The best part is the walk through tunnel at the end. My 14 month daughter loved it here and would take her again when she's older (providing there's a good offer on admission fees!)

I love this place, But it is a little pricey. Went here with a few girl mates as a fun afternoon out. Was brilliant all the animal talks were brilliant and i really think children would love this! Great for a local day out in brum, just a little on the expensive side, but look into deals as there are quite a few two for one tickets about. The gift shop is huge so take a few extra quids! My favourite part was the tunnel.

Went here on a wet rainy day in Brum. Soon brightened my day up, turtles, otters, rays, sharks, you name it this place had it.... Was good value for money (£20) but you can sometimes get offers / vouchers to get 2-4-1 deals. Took some great photos and had a whale of time.
