useful attraction

the location was good once you found it (poor signposting). The exhibits were good but perhaps the tickets were a bit overpriced.

very interesting, although they were trying to get ready for the summer season with a new tank being built and a lot of placards telling you the names of the fishes were either missing or in the wrong place. no toilet facilities there, but some a short distance down the road

This is a very small aquarium, with quite a few empty exhibits and a lot of missing labels. Still, it was worth seeing, because it is in tunnels originally dug in the 1860s to supply the fort above it and then greatly expanded by the Nazis. You can also head up the stairs outside to visit the fort on top.

We took our granddaughter to the aquarium this week. It needs some attention as it is rather run down. The idea is good and there are some interesting exhibits. Wouldn't rush back but enjoyed what we saw.

Took my niece and she loved it. Based inside the hill its an unusual aquarium and very interesting. She was amazed at how close you can get and despite looking like it needs a renovation for a laid back afternoon, it was nice.

We went into this with an open mind but actually it was terrible. There are probably more fish to look at in our local nursery for free. The signs were under renovation so we weren't entirely sure what we were looking at and there was a dead fish in one tank.

It cost myself and my daughter a total of 8.50 to have a look around the aquarium. It's not massive but we had fun looking at everything and it's well worth a visit

Cost around £5 and I would not have wanted to pay anymore. It is a nice place to while away a rainy hour or two and the seats throughout the viewing areas are good. However, a lot of the tanks didn't seem to contain the fish that the information stated that they did. The lights weren't working in some of... More

Okay for families with smaller children. They will be interested in the fishes and sea creatures. Teens might not find it so interesting though - depends how keen you are on fish

My wife & i are annual visitors to Guernsey and re-visit most of the attractions every time (we've never missed the noon-day gun at Castle Cornet) but we give the Aquarium a miss as it is not really value for money. Even our children were disappointed (but they loved the underground museum close-by)
