Given the fact that the aqauria is located in the capital, this is an amazing negative surprise. The size is very small you see all in like 30 min, the cafeteria is a joke serving pre-fab's only. Literally a joke if compared to the blue planet in CPH

The entrance fee is about 13 euros which is not expensive but not that cheap. The aquarium is the smallest i ever visited, a small rainforest, a few seafish and seehorses, a tank fill of baby salmons And that´s it. So small i couldn ´t believe it was already over. We visited it in less than an hour....

AMAZING view from the cafe. Tickets were cheap and there weren't a ton of animals. I've been to way better aquariums but the view made it worth it.

My wife and I really enjoyed this. The first part is a tropical rainforest and they do a good job of reproducing the sounds/smells. Be careful underfoot as it can be slippy. The aquarium was good. Some good exhibits and everything was clearly labelled and informative. There are sharks and rays in the main tank, and numerous other displays with... More

We arrived here before it was open, so we had to wait. Once inside, we walked through the exhibits and we were done within 30 minutes maybe. There's not much to see. Save your time and money and find something else.

The visit begins with a visit to a tropical jungle. The humidity will make you feel like you are in a real jungle. There are various species of fishes, frogs, snakes on exhibition. The exhibitions are designed in such a way that you can see the fishes from outside (as you would see the in a pond) and from an... More

We got very nicely greeted by the woman in the reception - always a great beginning! The museum is very nicely done - but lack space and hasn't really got enough to look at. I also noticed, travelling with a non-Swedish speaking friend, the signs were not all in English. It is a great spot to take your family too,... More

It might not be the biggest aquarium around, but it certainly shows you so much more than the usual aquarium visit. The tropical rainforest even has thunder and lightning storms all around you. The seahorse exhibition is a real treat, so go and watch the Dads looking after all the baby seahorses! My favourites were the Rays as they swam... More

Nice aquarium, although we preferred the one inside Skansen museum. The tropical rainforest room is cool!
