“Love the fish”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

The aquariums are beautiful. Tons of fish and sharks. The musuem changes the main theme all the time. Makes it fun to keep going back. Also the outdoor area you can sit and enjoy lunch or going sit in the park.

“Take the kids!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

This is a perfect place to take your kids or visitors! It is a small enough venue to do everything thoroughly and a good way to spend an afternoon in an air conditioned place. Adults will enjoy it too!

“Fun for everyone”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The planetarium show was interesting. Most of the exhibits were fun. Some of the aquariums were filthy. We went on Senior day for a discount. I don't know if I would pay full price.
