It is small and well maintained aquarium. The entire trip to aquarium will not take more than 20-30 mins. It has some nice exotic fishes specially if you want to find NeMo. :)

A must see place. Affordable entry ticket. It'll be much better if they had more items to display. Don't forget to see the big tortoise out side the building.
