“Large and informative”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Very informative and large. The static displays were really good and the best aquariums were the smaller ones when you enter the aquarium, it seemed like they put the details in those and then rushed to finish the larger ones for the opening. The only large aquarium that was good was the last one with the ship wreck and the one that was the Livorno Fortressa walls.

The Aquarium in Milano was much better, in that the displays had such attention to detail, one was blown away. The displays at Livorno lack the "love" of the undersea world that is obvious in the aquariums in Milano.

All in all I was glad that I visited and do see that the aquarium will improve with time.

“Expensive for nothing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

it was nice and clean but nothing spectacular. i belive that for all that money you should have seen a lot more. i saw only a few species, a few fish tanks, and mostly there were information on the walls about the history of bla bla, somethig about Earth's rotation and a short history of the discoveries related to our planet/ signs of the zodiac on the sky. ah... and the only really interesting thing i saw acording to me, was a notebook (actually 2 notebooks) of Galielo Galilei. after i came out i had a pregnant feeling that i threw my money of the window.

“An expensive fish tank!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The acquario isn't as big as some others like the one in Genoa, but the price is! It is nice but way over priced!
