  • Very good aquarium. My son enjoyed it a lot and for just over 20€ for him and I i felt it was good value. The huge shark tank viewed in various ways is particularly good.

Some tanks seemed way too small for the fish held in them but I guess that is captivity for you. There is a small gift shop which is set out a bit haphazardly and a restaurant but did not try it so cannot comment. Overall a good experience.
