It depends on the day but the day we went, it was so crowded that we were like pushed around in the aquarium and could not enjoy observing the fish and sea creatures. The buildings and facilities are old and not quite fascinating.

Very nice large aquarium. Also very crowded! They offered a dolphin show - such as you would see at Marine World in the US. Large grounds could easily have spent half a day here.

For the paid exhibit areas, one will need at most 2 hours. The big aquarium with the giant whales is a must to see though. Wait for their feeding time and you will be awestruck. You will probably spend more time outside the paid area...More
