One may say, it's just full of fish tanks. However this one is more of a tour around the our blue planet. It takes the visitors on a tour around local rivers, local seas, nearest ocean covering them..... more »
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.
Lovely set out Aquarium and has daily shark feeding. A good variety of fish on display and all within a great setting. 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.
