The aquarium is full of local fish which I loved as I live on the coast myself. It is small but inexpensive so if its raining its worth a stop off

I take the wee one here every couple of weeks, he loves it. Staff are really friendly and helped out when he got a little bit scared. They did a good job as its cost me a fortune going back there a lot.

Don't get excited, this attraction closed down months ago. It was badly subscribed and had very steep stairs to view the fish Rather badly housed and arranged

Small tall building but the exhibits were really fun & interesting. entry fee too expensive but we enjoyed it anyway, its way too small to be an aquarium and its now closed.

Falmouth aquarium is quite small but there is quite a lot of information. I think this place is great for taking younger kids who want to learn about aquariums.
