This place is really cool. They have touch tanks and lots of sea life to look at. Currently they have nurse sharks and 4 turtles. This is a fantastic place to take kids or anyone who wants to see/touch sea life. (not every thing can be touched. )

A must if traveling with kids! We were able to pick up many marine life animals from the specimen tanks including starfish and crabs! The kids loved seeing a sea turtle up close! There is a little gift shop that you enter through to get in, of course, but its perfect with gifts that are reasonably priced. This is a perfect little place for the kids to learn while having a blast!
