The renovation also saw the introduction of new exhibitions, such as the Jellyfish Discovery; home to several tropical species of these stingy beings, including the mysterious moon jellyfish. Another new addition is the glass-bottomed boat, giving you an unprecedented view of the deep. Your visit doesn't really count as a visit if you haven't..
