Your Experience

Surrounded by our brand new coral exhibit, each interactive story follows a different marine creature as it journeys through the ocean, exploring its surroundings and meeting colourful creatures!
With weekly sessions available in five-week blocks and a different interactive story each week, there is lots to explore and experience together, to strengthen relationships and create ever-lasting memories.
