We visited the aquarium early morning about 10am there was not much of a queue and it costs 20 euros for adults and a tariff for children you need to judge for yourself if you are will to pay. Inside there are many tanks with some colourful displays but the overall look is cheap and drab. When you enter there... More

We visited the aquarium in early February, on a Saturday evening at a cost of 20 Euros each.. It is much hyped in the guide books so we were looking forward to some impressive displays. What a let down! A series of small tanks with no really impressive displays then the usual big walk through ( or in this case... More

This is one of the biggest sea life centres I have visited a great way to spend a few hours great if you have children a little expensive at €20 per adult and a tip if you don't have children and want some peace avoid weekday mornings as there were around 60 children on school trips and there were not...

It's not as big as I expected but is quite rich on species. Not very different if you've seen a big one in another city. Price is a little high so could be harmful for the wallet if your family is wide. It was not very crowded because of the season when we visit.

We expect to see some really special fish but we were not impressed. The aquarium is not big so it was a very short visit.. It didn't take us more than 15-20 minutes. I guess if you have young children it will be more suitable.

I really enjoyed this place. The corals and fish are amazing to look at. I would recommend for you to go there quite early between 9-10 am. Pretty much at opening time, which we did so we only had to stand in line for about 10 mins. And believe me the line can get reeeaaally looong. And your Kids wouldn't... More

I visited the aquarium in Barcelona with my family and we all throughly enjoyed it. The over head tank is a great idea and is nothing like any aquarium I have been to before. Definitely worth a visit!

A nice day out, however you could find yourself surrounded by children as there were a few school trips on the day that we went but this is expected and wasn't really a bother for us.
