Not a large aquarium but the tanks they had were well presented and well labelled. All were clean and it was a good sample of local sea life in a nice setting. Maybe 30 minutes for a quick look to 60 minutes if you take an interest in the creatures. A good place to get away from the sun for... More

A short but informative introduction of the animal sealife of the Adriatic. I do believe we payed 30 kuna a ticket. A bit steap for some aquariums in two rooms might be some peoples judgement. Still an experience worth your while I think.

Some fish, some crabs. 20 minutes. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. And although tripadvisor is asking me to put more then 50 characters, I cannot think about anything else :)

It is a simple and small aquarium, but really shows you what can be found in the Adriatic Sea. My daughter ( aged 10 ) enjoyed it very much. About a half hour family program, with reasonable ticket prices.

We visited here after one of our trips was cancelled due to strong winds, and we were not at all disappointed. There are many species to see in the small aquarium and the octopus kept us amused when it came out of it's hiding place. It was good to get a close look at some of the marine life in... More

This aquarium is tiny, about the size of your average front room with an annex! Saying that it had a fair amount of aquatic life in there to see and it was never crowded! and it amused the kids for half an hour whilst it rained! I was just a bit surprised as was expecting something much bigger.
