The aquarium is located abaout ten minutes drive from the city (don't bother walking, as its quite far). Situated on the coast it is a really nice aquarium with all the Norwegian species of salt water fish. There are also penguins and some tropical exhibits. A seal pond is also under construction and should open in fall 2014. If I... More

This is a lovely aquarium for both adults and children. It has all kinds of species of fish and even a pool with penguins. I also loved the fact that it's located on the Atlantic shore. It is definitely a must see while in Alesund.

Visited aquarium and with only 2 hours until closing was afraid I may miss some displays. Spent the first 15 minutes watching the penguin feeding, which was fine but no real wow factor, then set off to see the rest. Many displays were not labelled, and in some tanks water was cloudy reducing vision. There were a couple of tanks... More

I have visited Alesund many times over the years, but for no reason I had not taken a trip to the aquarium. I now know what I was missing, my 3 year old daughter had a great time seeing everything on offer. The penguin feeding was a real hoot - the feeder wore a penguin suit to match his surroundings....

This is a must be for your children. Every day at 1. p.m. a show takes place in a big tank. A diver enters the tank and feeds the big fish, halibuts, cods and many more. The fish eat straight from the diver's hand. In another tank the children can even touch the fish. Outdoor there is a penguin park,... More

We had visited Alesund in 2012 and had seen the sights so we decided to do something a little different when we left our cruise ship for the day. We loved this aquarium, the wolf-fish were amazing and the show with the diver showed how friendly they were and the giant halibut!!! Really enjoyed seeing the blue lobster, and the... More

One of the best offers in the town for familily Activity, defenitely when it is raining. However, outdoor you find a Penguin park and a seal park almost finished. However, the highlight is the big tank where a diver at 1 p.m. every day go into the tank and feeds the cods, catfishes, halibuts etc. A great event!
