Myself and my boyfriend visited this aquarium on a dreary afternoon whilst on a long weekend vacation in Barcelona. It was easy to find, even for tourists who have no sense of direction. Although we thought the entrance fee was quite expensive we definitely thought it was worth the money. This place is really big, we spent a good few... More

it is a lovely place to visit, very busy, but definetely worth going to. If you are a sea lover it is the next close one to the real thing. It is amazingly situated just next to the pier, so when you are done you can rest, have something to eat (plenty to choose from) and watch the sun going... More

My son (4) and daughter (14) absolutely loved this, very well done and close to the beach overlooking beautiful areas and fun hints to do and see inside

I'm a local and I decided to take of my kids, my 5 year old daughter for a different evening. I was absolutely shocked by the obscene price of the venue. There's no relevant discount for large families as we are, and the price for 1 adult and 1 kid ("reduced fee") was 29€: I find it a robbery. Might... More

This was my second visit and once again, I left with disappointment. For the price (€20) and overall rating, I don't think that it is worth going. I understand that families might have this attraction in mind, but I do believe there are better aquariums within Europe or even Spain. The first time I went, which was in 2014 I... More

Good start if you buy tickets in advance so you can avoid long waiting by the counters. The aquarium has excellent variety of sea creatures including sharks, stingrays, octopus, Dory & Nemo... Minimum an hour and a half but easily more to go thru everything. I've been to several aquariums worldwide and all I can say this one worth a... More

While visiting Barcelona, we decided to stroll along the beach on our last day and came across this aquarium. Out of sheer spontaneity we decided to go and see some sea life. We were met with disappointment as we started to explore the exhibitions. Not only were some of the tanks dirty, but the fish seemed almost lifeless as if... More

Our kids love aquariums and since we have been living in Switzerland, we hardly see any so we take every chance we get to visit one. While in Barcelona, we needed to go here. We enjoyed seeing the marine life, as always. However, it is a little small and very expensive, 20euro for an adult ticket unless you have a... More

Barcelona aquarium left really positive and stunning impressions! We were surprised by amazing underwater flora and fauna. The most impressive attraction is tunnel with sharks, but also other aquariums with variety of fish were really good! I recommend it as a good addition to other Barcelona's sights. it is good both for adults and children
