Nice place to take some photos but it's not worth 20 euros. The nice thing is that you can find Nemo there!

Visited here last month with our children, they loved it. Highlight was the rotating floor and getting to see the amazing sharks...it's quite small so doesn't take long despite appearances from the outside but well worth a visit.

As expected, the aquarium wasn't big as stated by other reviewers. We decided to pop by still to escape the heat and also something for our two toddler boys to do. Fish set up was ordinary nothing fanciful. Think the highlight was the moving walkway in the shark tunnel. Ticket was not cheap though but if you really have nothing... More

We were looking forward to visiting the aquarium as it was a gloomy morning in Barcelona and quite happily paid our €20 euro pp entry fee! However once we gained access we were bitterly disappointed with what we found! The aquarium consists of a few small tanks full of rather bland and boring fish followed by a automatic walkway which... More

The best part is penguins feeding, don't miss it! tunnel with sharks is also cool, in the end there is a place to sit and chill watching peaceful water tank full awesomeness.

My husband and I visted the aquarium on a Sunday morning in late August. There were a lot of excited children but the place is big enough to accommodate everyone. the moving walkway through the shark tank is the highlight but the other displays are also good. Definitely worth a visit to escape the heat of the sun or bad... More

For 20 Euros, I thought that this place was quite over priced. The fish set up was ordinary and even the shark tunnel seemed like a glass cage. If the price were lower, this could prove to be a good attraction. However if your duration of stay is short, it is advisable to skip this.
