The centre has a permanent exhibition which mainly shows elements specific to the natural treasure of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve and various temporary exhibitions. Two dioramas have exact reproductions of the habitats specific for the Danube Delta. Northern Dobruja and the Razim-Sinoe Lagoon Complex let you discover the high biodiversity. Among the presented bird life are pelicans, small egrets, spoon bills, shelducks, or black-winged stilts.
The most impressive is the presentation of the fishermen’s life in the Delta. The biggest attraction is the integrated Public Aquarium (collection of live fish from fresh and marine waters). You can walk down the tunnel of the biggest basin of the aquarium, where you are surrounded by sturgeons. Two cylindrical aquariums offer the visitors a view of the reef life of exotic species (surrounded by sharks and colorful corals) from Latin and South America, South-west Asia and Central Africa. In total, you can see 24 indigenous species of fish from the Danube Delta and the Black Sea, 23 reef species, 8 marine species of invertebrates and 12 coral species.
