This is something unusual. From small fish to big sharks, this place offers some great experience! Unfortunately L'Aquarium is not very big, quite the contrary. Could be a less cheaper but still, this could be a great adventure.

We, me and my husband, both liked this aquarium. If you have extra time in Barcelona, go to the aquarium! It suits to families but also adults enjoy. Only the restaurant/cafe was quite expensive...

The aquarium gets VERY busy so make sure you go for opening. We went about 11.30am and the place was already very busy. Spent most of the time fighting to see into each tank, some of which were looking a bit dated. Given the number...More

If you have kids, it's raining and you want them entertained, it's an okay place. Despite the advertising, it's nothing extraordinary.

Visited the Aquarium in August and luckily had 2 free tickets so only had to pay for 1 adult and 1 child as would not have been worth the full amount at all. We hung around for the pengiun feeding expecting to be told some...More

Overall it is a very good experience. The only setback is the lack of information about some of the exhibits which is completely missing.

Are you confusing weedy sea dragons (which there were two) to leafy sea dragons? We asked one of the staff who said there wasn't any now.
