“Good selection of fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Great selection of local and tropical fish arranged in an educational and captivating manner. No giant displays, but there is a petting tank and the fish are well-kept. It's part of a consortium of acquaria that guarantee quality research and keeping. Bonus were the seahorses cuddling! Our visit took about 45 minutes; add extra time to see the special exhibition, which is currently on the history of astronomy.

“Not really good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The aquarium is small and all the visit takes a couple of hour,but only if you stay for a long time in front of the aquariums. The displays doesn't work very well, so, we couldn't know the name of the fish we were looking at. At the first floor there is also a show about sky and universe, but it's not well explicated. The only thing that I liked was the Green Turtle. Maybe Livorno Aquarium needs to improve in organisation and quality.

Was here with husband and sons (aged 7 & 3). We all loved the place and there were plenty of fishes and other sealife to be seen.

“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.
