The aquarium looks like just a small cabin at the entrance, but it has larger rooms at the back. It's hardly an enormous exhibition so to pay for a whole family to go in (€6 adults) may seem a bit much. But if you want to take your time for a close look at the local sea-life, or are buying... More

Informative, good guide and you can get to touch/hold a snake; but maybe it needs sprucing up a bit.

Just visited during a pretty lousy day in Corfu weatherwise and quite enjoyed the visit. Entry fee's reasonable at €6 for adults. The place is a little rough around the edges and it's by no means a big place. Still worth a visit though and we didn't expect to have the chance to hold a python or stroke a giant... More

After reading mixed reviews we knew that we wanted to check it out for ourselves. We paid €6 each and entered the first area. There was a young woman showing a German couple around and asked if we'd like to join, she was well spoken and very knowledgeable. The sea life area has good variety across a good amount of... More

Maybe our expectations were too high, but expected more visual wows considering Greeces beautiful waters. Sanke handeling was very fun, and staff were fun and energetic. Great when weather isn't for sunbathing!

The staff are pretty enthusiastic but the exhibits are ... well you just feel they would be better in the sea. The glass bottom boat experience is a bit disappointing, you can't see the fish very well and there is no commentary to tell you about the area. But it is nice to pootle along the coast.

We headed here after another reviewer recommended it for a rainy day. There are only three rooms and the number of fish/reptiles to view is quite limited. I had been hoping to learn about some of the fish we had been snorkelling with but didn't see any. We did however meet George the resident, very friendly, iguana. He likes to... More

The Corfu Aquarium is a definite place to visit. Make the day of it and visit the beautiful Paleokastritsa. Its really cheap and has some wonderful creatures to see. The staff are really friendly they will give you tonnes of information on the animals they have. You can have the opportunity to hold a snakes and dragons or stroke George... More
