  • Great experience with kids of ANY age. It is the perfect size for a 2 hour experience and so reasonably priced. Highly recommend. Note, I was not aware a portion of it was outside and not dressed appropriately. So if you are going in the dead of winter like I did, dress for outdoor exhibition.
  • Really nice place. Really good species collection and really well presented. The underwater tunel is amazing. Its both outside and inside and right by the river so if you go during the winter dress warm especially if you bring kids. Its also a sanctuary so you know the admission fee is for a good cause.
