A great attraction which feels like you've found a secret - no on else seems to go there! GO GO GO!!

Such an unusual find. Really unexpected find on the outskirts of Zaragoza. Really can't understand why it isn't promoted more. It's really incredible, amazing exhibits, nice staff, great value for money and practically empty!! If you are near the area, definitely take a trip to the Aquarium - and if you haven't already do them a favour and spread the... More

Walk through the rivers of 5 continents and see the fish and animals! This place is fantastic for adults and kids. Go around 6 PM when most people are not there and you will have the whole place to explore without any crowds. Most exhibits at kid level which was great. Accessible by public transportation.

There were a lot of families there (on a Sunday afternoon) and the children seemed to be enjoying it as much as the adults. People who suffer from claustrophobia should be aware that the path through the various sections and river-systems (Mekong, Amazon…) leads through a labyrinth of dimly-lit, badly-signed tunnels, where the air smells strange. I can't be the... More

The aquarium was rather expensive, but they had beautiful fish and other animals (like little monkeys). We were alone in the aquarium. Just like the site of Expo 2008 the aquarium was abandoned. The big aquarium with the large fish was extraordinary! After your visit you definitely have to go to the top of the aquarium. The view over the... More

We entered the aquarium on a hot day after making a trip to the facilities of the 2008 Zaragoza Expo where the aquarium is located. With the Expo area practically deserted and our only company in the aquarium being a Spanish couple and their three children, we were only expecting a minor aquarium with mostly smaller fish and creatures, nothing...

My only surprise with this place is how quiet it was - they really need to sort out their marketing as it's superb, easily the equal of the likes of Valencia and Lisbon. It's well laid out and has some great species - not just fish but snakes, marmasets and otters too. The feeding fish for €1 was a nice... More

Great aquarium with exotic and very beautiful fish. An all weather experience. You can feed the koi, see snakes and apes but expecially all kinds of different fish.

The great thing about the Aquarium is that it appears to be another of Zaragoza's great unknown jewels. Much of the city is so peaceful. there's a lot to see but no crowds of people to disturb a leisurely walk round the outstanding facility.

The hop-on hop-off bus dropped us right outside the aquarium. We arrived at around 2pm and were the only people there, didn't see anyone else in the entire place. There's not much to read in English and there's nothing too exciting, except maybe the EUR1 fish food you can buy to feed the catfish. The bus has siesta from around... More
