Europe’s largest aquarium
At Nausicaa, you can get up close and personal with the ocean’s most fearsome predators — sharks. They will casually come to say hello on the other side of the glass in Europe’s biggest aquarium. The kids will be completely hypnotised by the immersive spectacle.
But sharks make up only a small percentage of the ocean’s (and Nausicaa’s) inhabitants! As you move from room to room, you’ll meet compass jellyfish, hatpin urchins, sea lions, pig-nosed turtles (yes, they exist) and even have a chance to stroke rays in the petting pool. After a final farewell to the penguins, there’s time for a quick stop at the shop and bookstore, teeming with fantastic souvenirs and other interesting treasures.
Not only will your children come away with some amazing memories and perhaps a new favourite animal, they will also have learned all about the marine environment and how we must protect it.
