I am a Marine Biologist living in Hawaii, and I thought I couldn't be impressed with something like this ... I was wrong. Incredibly informative, scientifically accurate, friendly English speaking staff, and the kids had a blast on the outdoor playground, zip line, water guns etc. It is a must see in a beautiful Danish town.

Very nice park with great staff and a nice restaurant! Our 2,5 year old had a great time and so did we! Very interesting and not so massive wich makes it feel so much personal! Kids will also love the water playground. If into animals and have small children a must see!

Really interesting time for all of us. I have visited there many times as a child, but this was my first time with my wife and father. We talked a lot about the things in the museum and the staff there where all super kind and helpful. We saw the Otter be feed and then took a tour around outside,... More

Excellent exhibition with great views. The small kids enjoy touching the fish. They will have great fun outside with the watermachines. A place for the family in all kinds of weather.

We had a great time. I've never been to an aquarium where they have lots of grills available for use and you bring your own sausages to grill for your lunch picnic. Cool! My son spent 2 hours or more playing in the water park section! I also really appreciate that they hired a "Viking". I really enjoyed the nettle... More

This aquarium shows life in freshwater (rivers, lakes, ponds..) and their surroundings. Apart from that, it also has displays that focus on the region and the longest river in Denmark (Gudenaa). A large family-based play area completes everything nicely.

This place was a real eye-opener. The aquariums house pretty much every species of European freshwater fish. Normally you never get to see these fish since they are obscured by murky European waters, but here they are kept in pools with excellently filtrated water so you can see them in all their glory. Outside there are otters and other animals,... More

At AQUA you will learn about animals living in freshwater. Bring your family, regardless age, they will all enjoy. As AQUA is both inside and outside, bring suitable clothes.
