Aquarium has a big tonnel, great place for pictures. Also at the exit there is a big souvenir shop. Entrance fee is 20 euros per person,... More

I was convinced by my friend to go and see this place in Barcelona and it was worth it, especially if you have children, you will have a nice time for a couple of hours, l thought the tickets were expensive though.

The aquarium was amazing. The tunnel is the best where you can see a variety fish sharks and rays. There are a large range of Mediterranean fish and creatures. The penguins are also worth a visit. There are secure lockers to leave bags etc. The gift shop was really good and reasonably priced.

My son and I had a nice trip to the aquarium. It is a nice pleasant place to spend the time watching beautiful fish. The highlight us definitely going through a tube surrounded by sharks and other see creatures. The bottom line not more than nice.

Amazing place to visit ! Maybe is not very big but looks great with plenty of animals to see. Obviously sharks are the most impressive.

Nothing exceptional with the aquarium of Barcelona- just a regular one. The huge fish tank with sharks was fun though. Restaurants were boring with poor selection.

20 euros just to look at different fish tanks with no tour guides no demonstrations of feeding sea creatures. The tour was over in 20 mins and 4 euros for a bottle of water in the cafe ... We were very disappointed!

Totally worth it! Amazing, not as good as the one in Vienna but still awesome. I strongly recommend it. It has lots of different fish and is very beautiful.

Exhibits were pretty nice, and it's about the right size for about an hour long visit. The best part was the octopus exhibit - we've never seen octopuses being so active, there were 3-4 of them and they went around the tank, swimming and crawling.
