  • Was here last year and it improved tremendously!! So many exhibits that were closed are open again and there were more staff to explain about the fish, I loved every minute but it can be exhausting, do yourselves a favour and skip going down the stairs in the observatory itself, and go up the to the viewing point, if you get overheated the shark world is amazing, the best exhibit (in my opinion)was the rare fish part.
  • An excellent underwater Observatory. The place is relatively small, but that only makes it more walkable, and there's so much to see! From the shark tank to the underwater Observatory to the rare animals exhibit. And with an adorable playground on site, the kids had a blast for hours. Note that when you buy a ticket, it's good for three consecutive days. We came back, and enjoyed the place as much the second time around as the first time.
