Not as many animals here as I thought there would be. Displays are neat, but when its busy it is hard to get up close to see everything.

I usually find aquariums a little underwhelming somehow, but I really like the Mote. It has a reasonable selection of sea creatures, but the exhibits themselves make it stand out, as they are very thoughtfully put together to convey stories and what makes each animal interesting and unique.
