The Aquarium is small but has some interesting fish tanks. Good for the kids. Good value for money works out about £2 in sterling entrance fee. Well worth a visit. Set in a nice building just out of town on the sea front

Because it is a small aquarium, we didn't rush and just passed by tanks, instead we took time to find all the creatures listed on the side of each of them. It was very interesting and fun. There are really a lot of amazing and beautiful creatures in there, and their labels are in four languages, which is great. Staff... More

The aquarium is without doubt the worst one I have visited. It can be visited in about 10 to 15 minutes as it is so small with about 15 tanks of fish within one average sized room. It may have been cheaper than other aquariums that I have visited in the past but was very disappointing.

OK so its little but it only costs about £2.50 to get in. There are probably about 15 or so tanks in there with a nice collection of local fish and sea creatures. Well labelled and presented, if you take your time and look closely there is more to see than you might initially expect. Spent about an hour in... More

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
