For a child who has never been to an aquarium or seen a dolphin show this would be good fun, otherwise I would give it a miss. The dolphin show is incredibly "Americanised" with pop music BLARING while the dolphins do their tricks and commentators dancing about in an aerobics style. Felt very sorry for the animals. The aquarium itself was better than the shows, and the sea creatures did have more space to swim around in than I've seen in other aquariums. The curio shops which are in the section next to the aquarium are great, and it is free to get into that bit.
