  • We had good fun here at the aquarium. The exhibits are quite nice and the range of marine life we saw here was fascinating. Will certainly return if ever in the city.

  • Great mix of museum and aquarium tanks. First you will learn about the first time humans sailed around the earth, followed by local fishing and boat racing tradition. Then they switch to natural history ans slowly move towards the fish in the aquarium. Especially the 1.8 million liter tank with local fish is amazing. Can recommend a visit.
  • Great fun especially with kids. First floor is a maritime ⚓ museum. Later on you'll have the aquarium. Please be aware the tunnel is only 2m high in the center.
