My daughters were fascinated with the animals, fish, dolphins, rather, with the entire tour and the attention of the young people. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy and know so much beauty. With the help of God and your enormous effort you will get a lot of financial support for your great work, congratulations.

INCREDIBLE, incredible, incredible. There are no words. We were able to see both the historic and newer parts of the city. The food, wine and rooftop view overlooking both the historic and newer parts of the city were beyond words amazing.

I really recommend this magnificent oceanographic museum and if possible to do it rather in the morning during these very hot periods of July because it takes about 3 hours to visit with waiting outside

It takes a long time in all the management and facilitates the entrance to the park It is worth it

Very nicely decorated, not too busy (on a Thursday), nowhere to queue,
