  • The place is very small and there’s not much to see. My children and I were very disappointed. The most important thing we came to see was the VR experience and it was closed. Nothing on the website.....  more »
  • Real size models of whales. Audio guides available, interactive parts of exhibition. We really enjoyed this unique experience.  more »
  • Great walk between the sea giants. Gives you a better view of what/who they are. Don't bypass the movie in the fin whale room. Disturbing but necessary. Great great staff, also.
  • Great exhibit to learn about whales. You can use their voice guided tour or download the app and use your own device/headphones too. Allow at the very least 45 minutes but it could last 2 hours if you like to read more about all of the whales. Very kid friendly!
