The Mull Aquarium is small but perfect for kids - my nephews were enthralled with the feely pool demonstration, the octopus and, of course, the interactive sand and water displays. Educational as well as fun, the aquarium has a fantastic ethos of returning the creatures...More

Small place, but touch pools, interactive displays/activities and talks by the staff make it brilliant for kids. The sand pit with the lights really is fantastic!!

Cheap entry price, wich also allows you to go away and return throught out the day. Small although enough to keep littles one occupied for a while, with talk sessions frequently. Extra activites you can do at small aditional cost

From the outside it looks like a wee place. But inside I found one of the most amazing aquariums I've ever seen. I saw species I didn't even know were in British waters. The staff were really helpful and the touchpool demonstration was awesome. Jenny...More
