We have two kids, 1,5 and 8 yes of age. The kids had a great time and recommend Risør akvarium for a rainy day.

We didn't know what to expect, given the small size of the aquarium, but we ended up staying almost two hours. The staff was so engaged and eager to share their knowledge of the sea life. There are several large tanks where you can fish for crabs or touch a variety of fish, including sharks! To top it off, they gave us a two-hour private boat tour of the islands around Risør. It may not be glamorous like Monterey Bay or packed like the New England Aquarium, but it is completely worth the visit. The cost of the boat tour is very reasonable and well worth it!

The aquarium is small but features a great variety of local fish and other aquatic life. There is also a small tank where kids sit and do crab fishing.

This is a small aqarium which unfortunatly seems a bit worn out. Several small tanks is lacking information about what you see, and the stuffed birds seems to have seen there better days a while back. Several touch tanks that I think the children appreciated, but we didn't see the need to spent much time here. The price seems steep compared to what you get.
