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.

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.

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.
