I went to Oceanografic to take my 9 yards old son thinking it would be just one more and rethinking if we should pay so much for a afternoon visit. But I was amazed! Such a... read more

I thought it was really nice and worth a visit, but the entrance was too expensive. And the food or coffee you can get inside are horrible, disgusting and really, really expensive.

It was very nice, but I struggle with the fact that for example the Walrus did the same route round there sparse tank and paint worn in the same spot showed that they had been doing that routine, a sign I believe of a very bored animal. A possible renovation of the place would be a good idea to make... More

So much to see and do - from interactive exhibits to an animals park and restaurants. The surroundings are beautiful and it's easy access from central Valencia - walking. I didn't realize this place had so much to offer. Very happy we went

Including the Dolphin show which only has about 50% of the seats covered so in summer it is BOILING and too uncomfortable to watch. In addition they had an English guest get called up to the front (a really young girl) then spent... More

The parking area is spacious and right below the Oceanografic. Paid €12.60 for 4 hours of parking. We are here for the beluga honestly. Love the concept where Mediterranean, Arctic etc. are put in different location instead of under one roof. But the beluga looks so .. sad. I really hope it's not alone in the tank. Probably the other... More

If you like fishes, sharks and dolphins is you place to go! Otherwise there is not much to see, i mean is a very nice place but not to waste time if you have just a weekend like us in Valencia..!! But even though is interesting.

Great family day out. It is expensive but the dolphin show was worth it. Not too busy and it was very tidy.
