What the ‘House of the Sea’ lacks is the chance for visitors to spring into the shark tank for some thrashing, but a staff member does just that at 6pm Thursday. While the museum is unlikely to blow you away instantly, it is an interesting glimpse into the world of lizards, sharks, crocodiles, snakes, fish and creepy-crawlies.

The shark and piranha feeding sessions at 3pm Wednesday and Sunday are strong draws, and another is the reptile feeding at 10am Sunday and 7pm Thursday. There’s a glass tropical house filled with lithe monkeys and a small rainforest. It occupies the inside of a Flakturm, giving you a chance to see the interior of one of these monoliths.
