  • Impressive size for a smaller city. My kids enjoyed our visit. Personally I found the aquariums very small for the animals, and on a day with a lot of visitors it was hard to have a good look at the fish. A lot of the content was not translated into English, which made us skip some parts of the exhibition. And honestly- THE attraction, the Nautibus did not turn out to be what the flyer we had made us believe it would be! We stood very long in the queue, just to look through another little window on the same sort of fish.
  • An excellent venue. Good parking, well set out and excellent exhibits with natural backgrounds. Fun experience on the 2 journeys by nautilus. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and restaurant attached.
