My husband & three year old visited the aquarium recently and had a lovely (air conditioned!) day out. There are two areas where you can walk through a tunnel of fish--sharks (great white, hammerhead), eels, stingray and a huge selection of Mediterranean fish. There are a lot of children's areas with crawl space areas with two or more exits. This... More

We have been to several top notch aquariums around the world. This doesn't really compare to those, but was a lovely break from the heat on a warm summer day. We enjoyed ourselves for an hour or so. It would be lovely for younger children (mine is 12) or for those who have not done up larger aquariums. I found... More

Never one for zoo's or Aquarium's we thought it would be worth a try. Good price to get in (get the 3 euro off by taking a picture of their poster on the metro) with lots to see. The best part was the moving walk way around the giant shark tank. You get to see everything up close. Would recommend... More

Cheap for what it was and where. Good that fish names were in 4 different languages and the tunnel was great. Penguin enclosure was not very big though which was very disappointing.

It was extremely busy on the day I visited, so beware if you have a pram or suitcases. One sand tiger shark in the shark tank did look a bit worse for wear though which made me feel very bad! Would also say that some of the tanks and exhibits were a bit dated, and the Penguins at the end... More

Great shark tank but the rest was slightly disappointing especially considering the price. Worth a visit if you get a discount but not a full price.

Good exhibition, but not groundbreaking if you have visited other large marine displays. Fun penguins at the end. After that, you leave through the expected souvenir shop.
