Great attraction

Good place to visit, but just like any other aquarium. Good idea to visit, especially in summer months, because you can enjoy a bit of cool, air-conditioned air!!

Our children are studying right now and this was a perfect trip for them to help with their studies. The aquarium is fine enough but the tanks are looking jaded and some of the fish a little unhappy. It doesn't really detract too much from the experience and the walkway tunnel is always fun.

Nice aquarium but I expected more. Good to spend few hours with kids. There is a tunnel under the huge tank with big fishes. Walk on the pier after!

Enjoy the tunnel where the belt moves and the Stingray's and Shark's swim above your head. Saw beautiful Angel fish. Interactive patch great for kids. Open hours are till 21:30 so you can unwind after a busy day of sightseeing in Barcelona, you walk along the harbour to the aquarium, lovely scenery and nice restaurants and movies right next to...

This was quite an expensive adventure at 20 euros per person and although there were some very pretty and unusual fish the aquarium felt very tiered and unloved and the fish were squashed into their displays. The most cheerful place was the gift shop with its array of stuffed animals. Great if you like that kind of thing

To celebrate my sons 10th birthday it was a most for me to give him this chance to dive with sharks. Therefore, we headed down the Rambla first think in the morning and got to the aquarium just before it opened. The staff were very helpful at the reception. We were able to arrange for the dive to take place... More

Nice aquarium, however nothing special, for such price i would really consider going there. The tunnel is fascinating place, but everything else is simple

The L'aquarium de Barcelona is situated pretty much on the water front of the Barcelona harbour so is pretty easy to access being just off of Las Ramblas. The aquarium itself is nice. The entrance is very open with lots of greenery and pictures *could be childrens drawings?* hanging from the ceiling. There is also a photo opportunity upon entering... More

I think it worths a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare and you are a fan of aquariums or if you are traveling with kids. The moving walkway is awesome! However, I think it is too expensive and if you are a family expect to pay a lot! Tip: they have student discount so bring your... More

Was alight walking about but we thought it was rather pricey for the size. I was expecting a lot larger.. there was also no octopuses and we walked round it rather quickly. We also found there wasn't a lot of information about the fish in the tanks. I think this would best suit very young children. And the penguins at... More
