Superb little aquarium. Lots of stuff to do and interact with and enough to keep both a 2 year old, a 14 year old and a 42 year old occupied for a good 3-4 hours

My family, two adults and two teenage boys visited here a few days ago. We went with our friends who have 4 children aged 2 to 16. Initially we were going to do the cruise ship tour of the aquarium but due to cost we decided to make our own way there. The ship was charging €40, the aquarium only... More

Some nice tanks, & decent exhibits etc. Main issue - if you don't speak Spanish, you're missing out on most of what this place has to offer. Some exhibits in English also, but only a few. And nothing for French/German/Italian etc speakers. This is a pity. If they want tourists from different countries to visit, and to learn + enjoy... More

This place does not look much from the outside but is a maze of rooms with displays and tanks , the biggest being down a longish corridor and steps to a huge tank with thousands of fish on display .

It is a nice aquarium and you can see lots of fishes from the Atlantic. It is very interesting and we just missed the octopus (too shy or afraid, probably). The fee for an adult is 10 euros per person.

There is a wide variety of sea life in the Aquarium, particularly considering the smaller size. While there is no English signage, we didn't find that to be a problem as we have a good app on our phone for translation. Loved the window where we could see the ropes hanging down encrusted with mussels and all the fish swimming... More

This aquarium gives one an environmental education and explains the diversity of sea life along the Galician coast. The explanations at the aquarium are very good and educational.

The exhibits offer vast biodiversity and the sea life is very well looked after. You will not be disappointed here :) The only issue for us is the lack of English information on the exhibits. We can't expect that of course, and on it's visual merit alone we felt it was great value.

I visited it with my friends. I really enjoyed it. A lot of little different activities to do and everything is organised quite good. However I really think that all descriptions in English language next to Spanish ones would improve the service :)
