“Overpriced and overcrowded...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I took my daughter there as a treat during her stay in Denmark. Although the Blue Planet is a nice building it was a bit of a disappointment due to the prices which I thought were on the high side and secondly the place was so crowded that it wasn't really an enjoyable experience. I realise this type of place has to make money to survive but paying a small fortune to try and see the exhibits through people three deep was not my idea of a good day.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The building itself looks really nice from outside, but the aquarium itself is just okay. Also the we had to walk pretty far to/from the metro station.

“Not intersting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Probably I got interested more in architecture and place. The whole deep blue planet was interesting but not that I expected. Compare cph zoo and the blue planet I would definitely go for zoo. But anyway if you haven't been in places like this you should go and see it.

“Fish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

It was not so spectacular as expected. The walls which was painted 'blue' was rather noticeable. Information was good, and the building beautiful. Easy getting there with the Metro. Nice sunny day with a view of the 'Bridge'.

“Left me blue”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

So disappointing, visited after reading reviews. This is put the record straight. This was the major disappointment on our trip to Copenhagen. Getting the bus from Central easy and cheap, the 5A. The driver even told which stop to get off. This is just a large collection of fish tanks, a glorified aquarium. I would estimate you could the whole site in under an hour. Only go if you are really interested in fish and can afford the overpriced entrance fee.
