Great aquarium just outside of Ålesund. It gives a great insight to the sealife in the area, and you can get very close to the fish in the open tanks. The penguins and seals outside are just great, and you should be there for the feeding of these. Same with the diver in the big tank. It's great to watch... More

This is a wonderful Aquarium and outdoor sea park. Superb setting. Lovely pools for sea otters. Penguins have a pool too. You just follow the fish on the floor to follow the route through the Aquarium. Some of the tanks are rather high so children would need to be lifted up. There is a large petting pool which looked tremendous... More

If you have kids this is a nice place to visit for some hours. Maybe not the worlds largest or most advanced but with a local twist. Except for the penguins and the seals all animals are local. Be sure to visit the exhibit where the kids can touch the sea life. Located just 3.5 km outside the city centre... More

We drove the short distance from Alesund Town Centre to the Atlantic Sea Park. The weather that day wasn't brilliant so we were looking for something mainly indoors. The Sea Park is quite small but there are loads of exhibits and a few shows so it took us easily 2 hours to walk around without any kids in tow. We... More

A lot to learn if you are interested in sealife in the nearby waters. Also nice area for a walk. Easy to reach by bus.

Family visit. Brought the kids to watch seals, penguins, fish, and other sea creatures live, including the feeding of the penguins. Not spectacular. However, the kids loved everything. Too slow and inefficient service at the cafeteria, creating long waiting lines. Tip of the day: if your hungry, wait until they start the shows, because then the cafeteria waiting line almost...

We set aside quite a lot of time for this visit, and was bit disappointed as we walked through everything very fast. We took our time to watch the animals and take photos but found ourselves done with everything after 45 minutes. Couldn’t find any excuses to stick around any longer for the shows either. Absolutely smaller than expected. The... More

One of the highlights of our trip to Norway, great experience for our four year old and use kept entertained watching him. Great aquarium tanks with the largest looking incredible. Also fun outdoors with the water cascades, we would love this at home in Ireland/UK, but unlikely with our health and safety/ liability culture. The highlight was the crab catching... More

This was billed as Norway's largest aquarium, but in comparison to the states it was small. Very well documented displays. Some of the fish exhibits were hard to see as it was very dark inside the building in some sections.

This small aquarium gives you an idea on the fish and sea life in the surroundings of Alesund. A nice experience for an hour or so. Try to plan around the time the animals are fed. You can take a taxi from Alesund Center for 150 to 200 kroner.
