Visited the aquarium, found it interesting and educational,plenty of fish to see,and penguins,this place can get very busy, with kids, but still worth the visit, costs 20 Euro to get in a bit pricey for an aquarium, good displays of the different types of fish.

I was quite happy to put the aquarium on my itenerary for today as it is down near the port in Barcelona where I was walking. Although I did like the aquarium I really felt that is was poor value for money. I am not one to complain about price but I did think that 20 euro was quite expensive... More

The aquarium was nice and a bit smaller then I am used to. It had a penqiun exhbit and the shark tunnel is a lot of fun. Also nice clean play area for kids and my kids loved it! If you want to go keep an eye out for coupons around the city, it will save you on the price... More

We have done a visit at the end of the program. 2 hours are more than enough to visit all the spots in the aquarium.

We visited here on a long weekend in Barcelona as we have been to a few other Aquariums and really enjoyed seeing all the marine life. It was a little small and very expensive, 20euro for an adult ticket unless you have a discount voucher was steep for what could have been done in an hour. The main tank is... More

For my three children, this was their favorite stop in Barcelona! It was a bit shorter than I anticipated to walk through, but full of gems to include sharks, sting rays and octopus! There were a couple of interactive stops along the way and a little play area for younger children to enjoy. Definitely recommend for parents with elementary aged... More

Most aquariums are quite expensive so the price didnt bother me much, but when we came out the other end and realised we had finished with the exhibits it was a little disappointing. we wasn't in there for that long at all. It was enjoyable when we was in there, just wish it was as big and more stuff to... More

We saw this place by accident so we thought what the heck, we give it a try. The prices was like everywhere.. Expensive. 20euro per person over 10 yrs old. And children under 10 was 15 euro. Well for us it was 80 euro right away 😂. But wow! Inside it was amazing. All the sting rays, fishes and sharks.... More

Dear Sofia, Thanks for your opinion. We are glad that you liked it. Regarding the subject of penguins, they can sometimes offer a little care, especially when they are changing the feathers, but the truth is that they are very well, and even find the ideal conditions to reproduce. As for the bracelets or flanges they carry, there is nothing... More
