  • The conditions in the outside weren't so great.. although the inside was pretty good and beautiful it had a lot of types of fish and a shark! You could definitely bring kids there it was a bit smaller than other aquariums but overall it was nice
  • This aquarium shines with quality over quantity with lots of different kinds of fish and other maritime creatures. Don't miss out on the audio guides! I'm sure you're going to learn something new.
