  • Not the most expensive aquarium you can find. Nicety themed around the Lego Park, however the information panels etc are not easy to locate so therefore it is not easy to get detailed information on the fish available in the aquariums. There's a touching pool where you can touch starfish and see abalone. A nice experience for a first time aquarium goer.
  • I have had opportunity to visit numerous aquariums but I must say that this was one of the best experiences I've had in a long time. While small, the displays are well organized and the marine life is easy to see. The passport program encourages children to look for the next station needed to stamp their passport and moves them forward to the next exhibit. I have not seen technology used in an aquarium before. The touchscreens allowed my grandchildren ages 10, 6, and 4 to delve deeper and learn more than what their eyes alone could show them. Overall, this was a wonderful experience.
