  • Visiting this was a fun and interesting experience. It was interesting to see how fish are caught and to see the equipment. But none of the labels and signs were in English and we couldn't understand....  more »
  • This place has lots of information regarding how fishing is actually done. Some live fish and plenty of stuffed creatures are also about.  more »
  • The entire museum is in an old church. This probably the best use of a church that I have ever seen. There are a large amount of exhibits and just when you think it's over they have an impressive exibit of aquariums in the basement. I suggest this highly the price is extremely reasonable for the amount of things to see.
  • Great place for children and grown ups! The best part is in the basement. First you go through the ground floor, then 2nd, 3rd, and from there to the aquarium part downstairs. Plan your time such that you have sufficient time for the last part! Also bring some snacks, e.g., sandwiches and drinks. You cannot buy any food here.
