It is ideal, not only for the children but for anybody who wants to see a great place. Many species of fish, and nearby you have museums. If you want to catch the dolphin show you have to stay in line one hour before.

My family and I visit the Oceanografic with an evening ticket (from 19:00 up to 1:00 am); we had a quick visit to all the "seas" and areas. My two kids enjoyed a lot. There was live music all over the park; in the tropics there were a cello and violin duo playing. It was very relaxing. Some Jazz, some... More

I don't know why but we always go to aquariums in new cities - this one was brilliant - dolphin show, Penguins in snow, an awesome walk through glass tunnel and the lunch wasn't too bad either - paella and a beer. The architecture is stunning too.

This was my second time of visiting Oceanografic, and I think it seemed better this time around. We managed to see all but a small section, which we will catch up with next time. We bought tickets on line and arrived early to avoid excessive queueing, but need not have worried on this occasion. It is nicely laid out, and... More

It's a decent aquarium. If you've been to an aquarium in North America, you will be underwhelmed and disappointed as I was. Small exhibits that aren't very clean or interactive.

I want to start by saying that I'm the kind of person who struggles with seeing animals in Captivity so this review may be a little tainted by that view. I will try and not let this be the focus of my review though. There's a lot to see at the oceanographic, so if it's your first time, be prepared... More

In this beautiful towering structure, is one of the largest aquariums in Europe. The entrance fee is expensive, but the price is well worth the admission of all that one can see. The attraction is divided into different areas-birds, sharks, crocodiles, whales, penguins, dolphins, Red Sea fish and underwater life, butterflies, sea lions, etc. Each area allows a visitor to...

We really enjoyed our trip to Oceanographic, it is a fantastic family out. We were delighted that we had bought tickets on line in advance as the ticket queue was long. We were very taken with the whales and sharkes. The aquariums were amazing particularly the tunnels. However the queues for food were very long and slow so I would... More
