I think it is a nice place to go with the little ones. However I felt it was way too overpriced for it was. There is not a lot to do with kids at all and they do get bored very quickly. It will probably take you less than an hour to get around the whole Aquarium as it’s fairly on the small side and gets crowded very quickly. They need to provide better walk ways and maybe a interactive play or activity area for kids? Overall I did enjoy it and if in the area and need to pass time it’s worth a visit.
Nice aquarium with a breathtaking underwater tunnel where you can see sharks and rays from underneath and really close. We spent maybe two hours and enjoyed penguin feeding and a lot of smaller aquariums. A bit on the expensive side but it was worth it since I hadn't been in a tunnel like that before. Wouldn't go again any time soon though.
