  • Really enjoyed there. Although I was alone but yet that was very excited experience full of interesting and interesting things. Dozens of different ocean creatures, I never seen before. I wished my family would be with me. I will strongly recommend to every one to visit this place with family members specially children. 😊💐
  • Great exhibits in an historic building. They have a wide variety of fish and reptiles from all over the world. The building itself and the setting were interesting and the displays were set up so that guests could have close up access to see and even touch some species. The walk-through tube was amazing! Sharks and other fish were swimming right on top of you so you were able to see their sharp teeth up close!! The staff were all friendly and knowledgeable.
