Not much to say, we enjoyed it but it seemed a bit empty in places and the selection of wildlife wasn't as extensive as it had been made out to be. Still very good and the restaurant was excellent.

Presentation and design are good. Go first thing in the morning to avoid crowds. Belugas, walrus and seals very interesting. I am always concerned for the animals, and had mixed feelings about the dolphin show, for example. 2 1/2 hours of visiting time was adequate. Kids love it.

By far the best aquarium I've experience. It is definitely worth the price. The range of different species of fish, sharks and other sea creatures is overwhelming! A good way to spend a hot day. A nice place for food would make it perfect!

Breath-taking sights of all wildlife places of the Earth with their respective animal species. I liked very much the scarlet ibis in the middle of the park. Simply amazing.

The Oceanografic is definetly one of the best Valencia's attraction to see if you travel to Valencia. But the entrance ticket is very expensive and for a family of 4 this can be quite a expense. Most of the animals have enough space to move around except for the belugas which were just depressed and this made me sad as... More

This Aquarium is awesome, and Im not even too into Aquariums. I got to go for free with my school, and it was really great. They had beautiful penguins, an awesome dolphin show, and lots of really great huge exhibits. There were some species I hadn't even seen before. Definitely go if you have time!

My partner is a bit of an aquarium enthusiast, so we have visited a few around the globe, but architecturally and in terms of the grounds, this site takes your breath away. The aquarium is split into ten sections, which are in their own unique architecturally astounding building. Each building is linked by aqua water pools, The site plays relaxing... More

A wide variety of aquariums and species you can watch a dolphin show and documentary film about deep sea. Food and drinks available in site. It definitely worth a visit!
