Here at the Discovery Centre guests will find a gallery packed with interactive exhibits, allowing them to get their hands wet and engage with many different animals.

The Discovery Centre is a favourite place for guests to find out more about the dynamics of the marine environment through play. Enjoy the sensation of a deep-sea dive in an interactive submarine without having to worry about getting wet. Young visitors can have fun with a trip down the iconic clownfish slide or play with a water table that replicates the complex lock system of the Great Lakes.
