Nothing much to see or do. Just a wall - click it and done.
I was disappointed - why exactly would it be as attraction

It's a beautiful mural to check out, and you can walk around on the boardwalks to look for birds and other wildlife.

The famous artist Wyland painted marine murals on three exterior walls of the Convention Center, and they can be easily seen and photographed just by driving up to the center and parking right by the walls. The murals were paid for by groups, not by taxes, and they are colorful and fun.

Our son did a report on Wyland and it was more interesting to learn about him then actually see his art in person. It is just a wall but we had fun taking pics with the images! And I am biased....as an artist I understand how difficult it can be to create on a large scale. Amazingly beautiful....
