So engaging for the kids and the exhibits were all easy to see. Beautiful seahorses, scary sharks & hypnotizing jellyfish. Of course there are always Legos to play with!

Admission here was a part of our Legoland pass, and we're so glad it was. The exhibits were fantastic, and the conservation theme was greatly appreciated. As a bonus, what might be one of the best dining options in the park is upstairs here.More
