Hear From Others
We were really impressed with the facility and layout of the place, with exhibits clearly labelled and well-spaced out.
My favourite part of the Oceanarium would definitely be the Interactive Touch Pool where I got to touch some of the sea creatures there. Sea cucumbers, horseshoe crab, starfish and baby sharks are some of the creatures that visitors get to touch! It was quite fun 😀
My kids love petting the baby sharks at the entrance and also feeding the turtles at the end. Strangely, they also found the 3D theatre very mesmerizing even though my husband and I were already begging them to move on ?
