We spent well over an hour intrigued by the huge range of sealife from different parts of the world and environments. Perhaps the large tank with sharks and rays being the stars is the main attraction. You stand on a slowly moving walkway that takes you through a submerged tunnel with ample time to observe the "exhibits". Whilst quite pricey(adult... More

the visit to the aquarium was a good way of whiling away a couple of hours. There is also a shop and restaurant. There were some classes of school children and the staff were very good at talking to the children about the various species.

The large tank with huge sharks and other fish is really great, but certainly not worth the entrance ticket price. All the other stuff is nothing special compared to many other european aquariums. We were out of there in half an hour! Perhaps it is more worthwhile for people with children. We suggest the owner to install better information about... More

This aquarium is huge! You can easily spend an entire day strolling around. It's modern and clean. The shark jaws at the entry make for great photos. Food isn't great so maybe bring a picnic.

If you have too much time and and you have never been in a big sea Aquarium you can go. Its not so big and no too many types of fish. But its just 19 euros.

It was a rainy day in Barcelona and today was a day for indoor activities so we decided to go to the aquarium! We usually always go to an aquarium of the city breaks we go to and today did not disappoint! It was sheer class, the fish, the layout and even the little facts to give you done more... More

The aquarium is very overpriced for what it has since you can really only spend about an hour there at most. It is good to see but not sure I would recommend it to anyone.
