Well designed aquarium with several areas devoted to different habitats and landscapes. Sharps were good, as was the tropics and anything to do with seal and penguins. The Red Sea exhibit was dull - just a stage with an aquarium behind it and various marketing advertising on big screens for paid extra tours you can do in the park. I... More

Might be fun for kids but still the entrance is so expensive. Drinks and food prices are ridiculous. The animals are not treated well too. Small and dirty living area. We expected more from it. We were done within two hours.

Please don't go here, it is unethical and paying the entry fee funds its existence.... Please read on...I was very excited to visit the vast aquarium with our young children and indeed it was huge and the diversity of species was fascinating however there were some points of great concern which led me to research further. Firstly the Penguins did... More

Best aquarium I have ever been to. Great glass tunnel for viewing sharks. The Beluga whales were also particularly impressive.

This aquarium is really big and has lots of fish but its more of a family trip then anything else. The arctic and antarctic aquariums were really weak. The antarctic was a tiny room with about 30 penguins. The arctic had an arctic seal, a walrus, and two beluga whales. For those who have children or have never been to... More

The Oceanographic was my biggest dissapointment in Valencia. All my trip was planned around this visit only to find out a poor amount of fish species. Impresive water tanks but hello! Where is the fish?? So I found it terribly expensive for what you'll see. I have to mention the faboulous water tunnels, they are really impresive and so is... More

Definitely something to see if you're in town. Rather expensive, so the best option is to buy the 3-day ticket to do the other attractions nearby...for only a couple of extra bucks. The Aquarium itself is nice and big, but in desperate need of renovations. Some of the areas feel really depressive (specially for the animals). Skip the Dolphin show... More

Myself and my wife visited the Oceanografic when we were in Valencia in the last week in August. I would not go back again . The signage was terrible and we could not find the Dolphins area at all. The whole location is set amid a what I can only call a concrete jungle of modern architecture , which I... More
