Wonderful way to see sharks and Nemo's

It was very busy when we went and I can say it was wonderful. Initially you get to see a bunch of fish in clean and well kept tanks. The observation areas were dark which meant... read more

It looked like the animals had verry little space to move around in small crowded tanks. The penguins looked very sad in their area. The aquarium is quite expensive and too crowded. It is not worth the money and we will not recommend it too friends going to Barcelona

As an American visitor, I've seen plenty of aquariums on both the east and west coasts of my home country, and wanted to see what a Mediterranean aquarium had to offer. This aquarium was a massive disappointment and extremely overpriced (20€) for the five sharks and sixteen penguins that I saw. Wifi also isn't very good.

Great aquarium. Not huge and can do it all in couple of hours but lots to see. Decent sized sharks and good interactive areas for the kids.

Its an interesting way to spend a couple of hours, but the price is quite high. Attractions like these shouldnt cost so much, therefore more people would visit. Too costly in my opinion to be worth a visit.

I and my wife paid 40 ? but didn't see anything special. It's good for the kids if the ticket was less than 10?

I have been at many aquariums, this is not the best nor the worse. It's big enough for a family with small children to roam around and enjoy the attraction.

If you have a plan to visit a quiet refuge, Aquarium is the perfect places. But, you can consider an expensive fee for a common species... That is an inconvenient.

For this price I would expect more attractions and better organisation. Aquarium was rather small, I very much preferred the one in Valencia where they have dolphins show.

The aquarium wasn't the best I have seen but it was nice enough. I had five kids with me ranging from a year to 19. They all enjoyed it! Of course the Sharks were a hit. It took us about half an hour to go through it. We didn't stop to read what type of fish were in the tanks.... More
