This was a well laid out, spacious and so interesting attraction. The tunnels particularly were fantastic, and the children loved interacting with the seals. Dolphin show was ok but have seen better. Only criticism is that you are not supposed to take your own food in- and the food prices were very high especially as the entrance fee isn't cheap.

We'd already visited the brilliant Bioparc zoo so I wasn't sure if the aquarium would feel a bit of a let down in comparison. But I needn't have worried as it proved to be a fantastic day out for my two girls aged five and eight. Many of the viewing areas are underground so away from the sun which is... More

Lots to see at this attraction - beluga whales, walrus, dolphin show, sharks, deep sea fish plus some birds. We visited later in the day 4pm which gave enough time to see all the attractions and it was less crowded.

Valencia oceanografic was such a great experience. It took half a day for visiting the entire structure. It is divided in geographical areas, such as artic, polar, ocean, etc. Particular interesting was entering into a tank that covers the entire room; in this tank, FInally, walruses and seals are spectacular. I suggest not to buy presales tickets from tourist offices... More

No question that expense has not been spared in putting together this elaborate complex. The design of the building is very futuristic and yet it does not look like it will date so full marks to the architect as it blends in with old World Valencia. I like the fact the animals all have large playgrounds, Im sure this leads... More

The place is amazing, modern; but of course very new. Verry spacious... But can say - not a lot of animal specias - compared with a big place. Prefere Barcelonas aquarium. Loved a dolphen show, I misssed conection from the centre - 20min walk from metro!

We had a day in Valencia and decided to head for the City Of Arts and Sciences and after walking round this amazing area with spectacular architecture and stunning views we elected to go to the Oceanogrific Centre and while it was not cheap at 26 euro each for an adult ticket - it was amazing value and round every...

It was my first visit to an aquarium, and it was certainly worthy. We went with our two toddlers (1yo and 3yo) who enjoyed watching the fishes at first but logically got tired, as the whole visit easily takes over 3 hours. Unfortunately we couldn't watch the dolphins, since the dolphinarium got complete 15 minutes before the show started at... More

Walking towards Oceanagraphic is an experience in itself. Oceanagraphic is a well thought through conservation project. The dolphin show is interesting.
