Lots for children to see and do, with a lovely restaurant. Very good value for money, easy parking. Highly recommended we would go again.

I'm not a fan of aquaria, but this is one of the most unattractive buildings I have ever seen, don't bother.

This aquarium, I think, is more geared toward being an educational site for local schools and such, than to be an attraction in and of itself. It's a noble mission, and I'm glad to support it in that, but on the other hand it's not a must-see sight as you're in A Coruña. English translations are limited to non-existent, if... More

Apart from having just fishes like most aquariums, there were interactive things in there. Ideal for children.

This Aquarium is worth the 10€ entrance fee if you like Aquariums. It is a bit scatters as other reviewers indicate. The nautilus room is well worth finding and loved the baby cuttle fish and giant lobsters and octopus displays. Outside seaside location are nice on a sunny day. Seal display is a bit strange and algae filled though.

10€ each for adults is a little pricy, but it's a nice place. We really enjoyed seeing the seals swim around outside in their habitat. The lower level has huge aquariums with a wide variety of happy fish and other creatures. Kids would love it here.

We went there by chance (since it was raining heavily) and we did not regret it. Amazing fishes can be seen there, I also liked the octopi and the jellyfish exhibits, but the icing of the cake was the Nautilus, a huge aquarium where you feel like you are at the helm of the Jules Verne submarine, with tons of...

I will admit that after the main level and the outside pools I thought that was all the aquarium had and was disappointed. However when we made our way down to the underwater aquarium I was pleasantly surprised. The ambiance with music and tank with such a variety of species was great. For A Coruna it was a great outing... More

If you're in A Coruna, this is the place to go. But not worth a trip just to visit it. It is a nice aquarium and enjoyable for people of all ages but small. Definitely one of the best attractions in A Coruna.
