Small but nice aquarium and nice museum with several other things. The restaurant was a bit expensive and didn´t seemed to have many options

Since the 1980's each year has seen marvellous additions. The histories attached to the exhibits are very informative and the interactive displays are good for young and old alike.

The place has a decent aquarium, although not of the caliber of Osaka and Lisbon, two of the world's most extensive. There are also whale and dolphin bones, models of ships, and other artifacts of Spanish maritime life, going back to ancient times. Definitely recommended.
