“Amazing experience”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

A large main tank gave us welcome. The first image is striking and unforgettable. Sharks, stingrays, moray eels, many fish ... Small aquariums show smaller fish, octopuses, ... My 8 year old son was mesmerized!

“Speciall for the kids”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

It is a bit expensive, but is a good attraction, mainly for a familiar schedule. Nice installations and easy location. The region is beautiful and can be explored for many other touristic activities.

“Coy Carp Crazy!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great little aquarium - good way to spend a couple of hours, especially if it is a cloudy day (which is was when we went).

You must feed the Coy Carp in the pools in front of the aquarium - they go crazy! Great fun!

“Great even for only adults”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We took a chance by visiting the Aquario, as we typically don't go in for these types of attractions. Wow, were we surprised. A very well organized, well maintained and very interesting place to explore. Lighting in the building really enhances the views into the tanks. I have actually been to quite a few aquariums around the world and I'm not sure that I have been to one that tops this one.
