We found small yellow discount tickets to visit the Aquarium in our hotel lobby and decided to give it a try. The entrance alone is a dead giveaway of the horror show inside. The water features on the side of the steps leading to the...More

We saw that the reviews weren't very good but still gave it a go as my toddler was keen. Unfortunately I think we would have been better listening to the reviews. The aquarium was overpriced, dirty (tanks were filthy and dead cockroaches all over the...More

2017 We stumbled across this aquarium not having read the reviews here. The plight of the large Moray eel in a tank so small was very upsetting, reading the reviews on here on our return and finding out that the poor creature has been incarcerated...More

Was not the most impressive collection, so it felt a bit pricy for what the attraction had to offer. At least it was a escape from the sunny streets.

Please do not visit if you love animals. This was not a place I would bring my children either. Outdated and dirty cabinets, and it was pretty obvious that some of the animals were suffering. It is a bit strange that the authorities haven't closed...More

We visited as both my mother and I love aquariums unfortunately not this one. It is small, very dark and some of the fish don't appear to have enough space, especially that big strange green thing!!!

The aquarium is nothing special, but to be honest, never saw fish beeing so interactive. We spent half an hour watching the murenas hunting each other :) The sea stars, shark, piranas - all very curious and made fun to the kids

Reminded me of crappy attractions on the seaside holidays of my youth. My excitement about the visit was immediately peaked by the first exhibit being none other than the humble goldfish. They have a large eel who looks at every visitor like he's sizing up...More

We had some time to spare so we went down to the aquarium. It's not great. Pretty dark and small. They had a decent amount of animals but some of them looked a bit big for their tanks. Having said that, I'm no expert so...More

Absolutely horrific conditions for the animals. Had tears in my eyes looking at large fish stuffed into tiny tanks. Should be closed asap.
