  • I enjoyed the permanent exhibition. I like the history that was described throughout the museum and the info about the area. They have plenty of stuff for kids to do too. Lots of play areas and additional fun for young kids, like craft and construction activities. The silent disco was awesome. Lots of fun.
  • The permanent diaplays were as amazing and as interesting as I remember when it first opened. Our daughter loved the virtual aquarium as it reminded her of Melbourne aquarium! Loved the walk-in reef theatre room too.
