Don't expect to see here dolphins, big sharks or big mammals. The place shows the local fauna and emphasize the environmental issues. Visitors learn about endangered fish and which ones to choose in restaurant. (There was an interview with the place manager few months ago,...More

This aquarium opened in June 2018. It focuses on local fish from the four main seas surrounding Israel (the Dead Sea actually has no fish !). Not anywhere near as exciting as similar aquaria we've visited in other countries. Difficult to reach here by public...More

Very nice place and experience for the kids. Staff was friendly and the place was modern and well done. It's a fairly small place and there are no "monster" size fish exhibits there. There is also a pond outside where you can feed the koi...More

We visited the aquarium following an ill received recommendation. Unfortunately, recalling a wonderful day we've had in Barcelona's aquarium, we got our hope up. Although the tour is advertised as one and a half hours long, we were in and out in less than an...More

First - we visited (June 2018) as part of the 'pre-opening' tours. So I am not sure how much more work is going to be done on the displays, although they all looked complete. (There was some building work still going on around the entrance)....More
