Don't be put off by the queue. A wonderfully immersive aquarium, the huge round tank can be travelled around and through, and there are lots of added extras for kids and devotees. I did think that just a few tanks looked a little small but I trust that the aquarium knows what they're doing. Most of the facilities looked more... More

This venue is very clean and very well structured. Myself and my daughter were able to tour the aquarium independently at our own pace and were very clear of the directions that were set out to help us not miss anything. A modern finish makes the area a comfortable place to be. Upstairs at the end of the tank exhibitions... More

It is a decent aquarium. But if you are a tourist in Barcelona, there are many other attractions that are more worthy of your time and euro. The shark tank is impressive, but that is the only nice exhibition. This place is only good if you have young children.

I was there twice. It is great place to go also without children. You can spend there about 2 hours. There are lots of fishes and even sharks :)

Great tunnel with sharks, rays, and eels all over tank. Clean tanks, healthy fish. A good thing to do.

The L'Aquarium de Barcelona was quite a good place. There is a show, you must pay for it, but it is a great challenge! You can go into the water in a safe thing to see closely the sharks! The whole park is in a great location at the harbour. So many interesting thing you can find there. It is... More

Having passed the aquarium the day before whilst on the 'Barcelona Bus Turistic Tour' we decided it had to be on our places to visit. We visited in the afternoon 14.00. There was a queue, which moved quite quickly. Once inside, with only the light from the tanks illuminating our path, it made it so easy to see the marine... More

A beautiful aquarium that could be bigger for that entrance fee. The sharks are the most interesting part of it. Buying tickets online is important to avoid lines. Located in Barceloneta it is easy to combine a visit with a walk by the seafront.

Overcrowded with wallet-depleting opportunities at every moment. Starts with the mandatory "no obligation" photo at the entrance. You should rather wait in line, even if you don't want the damn photo waiting for you at the exit. We walked by when we could but most are forced into their Kodak moment. Focus is not on the beauty of the animals,... More
