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!

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
