This cheery, kid-focused aquarium concentrates on sea life native to Strangford Lough and the Irish Sea. Inside, the mixture of displays ranges from the educational-but-arguably-dull (models of the Strangford Lough ecosystem) to the more lively (giant aquariums filled with local and regional sea life) to the downright fun (the seal sanctuary). Along with its splashy occupants, the aquarium complex contains a cafe where you can rest and a gift shop where you can buy fish-related key rings, as well as a park, picnic area, and children's playground.
