We jumped off the hop on off bus here. Thought the aquarium was interesting. Worth a visit, lots to see - it is quite big.

I went with my sister (who has been living and studying in Zaragoza for this year) and she'd already been with her boyfriend but she was definitely keen on going a second time with me. There is no one around. We went on a Sunday which is already a quiet day but add to that fact that this is in... More

When I came here, I was the only tourist, which is such a shame because this was honestly a great place. It isn't JUST an aquarium. It's got many different types of animals, including Nile Crocodiles, monkeys, snakes, parrots, turtles, iguanas etc. And the number of different species of fish they have is huge! It's laid out in a very... More

A very nice aquarium and although quite expensive (14 euros) it is worth every cent of it. You will see a lot of different tanks with not only fish but also reptiles, amphibians and some monkeys. Unfortunately it is so far from the centre and therefore not many visitors go there. It deserves more visitors.

This Aquarium was a bit difficult to find, but as the local justice courts are nearby there is a large Police presence and they are very polite and willing to help show you were to find the building. The Aquarium is in the old 2008 Expo site, and is great, we spent about 2 hours meandering through with a 4... More

Such an unusual find. Really unexpected find on the outskirts of Zaragoza. Really can't understand why it isn't promoted more. It's really incredible, amazing exhibits, nice staff, great value for money and practically empty!! If you are near the area, definitely take a trip to the Aquarium - and if you haven't already do them a favour and spread the... More

Walk through the rivers of 5 continents and see the fish and animals! This place is fantastic for adults and kids. Go around 6 PM when most people are not there and you will have the whole place to explore without any crowds. Most exhibits at kid level which was great. Accessible by public transportation.

There were a lot of families there (on a Sunday afternoon) and the children seemed to be enjoying it as much as the adults. People who suffer from claustrophobia should be aware that the path through the various sections and river-systems (Mekong, Amazon…) leads through a labyrinth of dimly-lit, badly-signed tunnels, where the air smells strange. I can't be the... More

The aquarium was rather expensive, but they had beautiful fish and other animals (like little monkeys). We were alone in the aquarium. Just like the site of Expo 2008 the aquarium was abandoned. The big aquarium with the large fish was extraordinary! After your visit you definitely have to go to the top of the aquarium. The view over the... More
