Decided to do this on our last day in Barca. To be honest I wish that we hadn't bothered. It cost me 60 euros for myself, a 13 yr old and 11 year old. Like others, I expected it to be good after looking at their website. Oh well, expensive lesson learned.

whenever I visit a city with aquarium, took opportunity and go there. This one is not cheap, but it's possible to buy ticket online, and skip the queuing. I have no regrets, only satisfaction.

We went there with me teen age son. It was so boring for him that i felt that i waist my money. I had high hopes of this attraction after looking at their web site but was disappointed at the size and took 45 minutes to complete even though we tried to take our time. It was 20 Euros each... More

Aquarium was overpriced for what it was. 21 attractions only 2 worth seeing. Best part is the penguins which you can barely see through the dirty glass and could nearly miss this part as poorly sign posted

Nice aquariums with many fish species from the sea and very nice shark tunnel. But expensive for a family of four.

The tunnel aquarium is well worth the visit. At certain times of the day they have divers feeding the sharks by hand!

This place would be better if you had children with you, however as a couple we found it didn't live up to our expectations. quite small, and you can be finished within 15 minutes!

I had high hopes of this attraction after looking at their web site but was disappointed at the size and took 45 minutes to complete even though we tried to take our time. It was 20 Euros each (for an adult and 13 year old) and I felt this was too expensive for how long it took.

Quite good place for families with children. Maybe aquarium is not the best in the word but it is really nice. Glass tunnel makes you feel like in the middle of the ocean. Beware the shark! :)

Superb aquarium, and going by my children's reaction an excellent one! Plenty to see and do for the little ones.
