Nothing special in my opinion. We thought it was going to be really big by the description, but is's very small, nothing exciting.

We have visited the aquarium with our kids (aged 8, 5, 3). We all loved it. Family ticket cost us €34. After reading previous reviews I was a bit unsure if the place is really worth visiting, but now I can say for sure: it is. And I will return.
The kids loved it. Touching the fish, feeding it and exploring the submarine. The staff member,whose name slipped my mind (red haired young man) was absolutely great - he told us all about different species that lived in the tanks and he kept the kids interested and involved all the time.
There is few different feeding times, but ones you purchase a ticket you can go out for lunch and return later if you like a break in exploring the under-sea life.
It is a great place to visit.

This is a great place for kids on a wet day. Although it is quite small, you can easily spend a couple of hours in it.

The environment was very laid back because it isnt usually very busy, but the workers were very helpful. It was nice to be able to take your time through an aquarium unlike America
