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!

We got into the Aquaria Museum for free on the Stockholm Card and had a great hour or so. The fish are completely different to what you would find in England, and it was not too busy. However, if I had had to pay for entry I would've been slightly disappointed by the size. It is very small.

Walked through the place in less than 15 minutes: the aquarium is tiny and has very few exhibits. Not worth the (high) price at all.

The Aquaria Water Museum is situated on Djurgården and you can easily be reached by tram (from Sergels torg), boat (from Slussen) or bus. The place is quite small but have a rain forest, a lot of aquariums with fishes, octopus, frogs and other animals. It also has a temporary exhibition (this time sea horses). The children love it and... More

We had the Stockholm Card and we decided to visit it even if we had already visited the aquarium in the Skansen museum. We were not impressed, the Skansen aquarium was much better.

This place is so pathetically small that you could see everything in around 5 minutes so where on earth the owners got the idea of spending 2 to 3 hours there is beyond me.Terrible waste of money and this place is NOT cheap. There really is extremely little to see so don't waste your time or money as there are... More

The collection of under water sea creatures is very less. Not worth the visit. You can get the same but more creatures and views in Skansen aquariet... Audio guide is not available with Stockholm card. Pay extra 30SEK. Not worth to add this in our tour plan.

This is not the newest aquaria, but I still think its a very nice place to to go. You can listen to al the sounds in the rainforest and feel how humid its in a place like that. Also there is a large number of fish and other animals to see. Can recommend this place

It's a really nice, small museum with plenty of diversity - it has 4 distinctly different areas - the rainforest, mangrove, ocean and coral reef. And most species are displayed in a way that you can get really up close and personal with them. I highly recommend to visit during feeding hours. It's really spectacular.
