A nice collection of sea creatures. They did a good job creating their natural habitats. Our 4 yr old really enjoyed all the fish, and so did we. The only minus is the location or better the lack of parking spaces esp. for larger cars.

Although it is not the cheapest It was amazing! I personally reccomend to go outside high season to experience proximity to animals.

The Aquarium is large and houses a variety of creatures however the price is steep. It is part of a large area with plenty to see and do, a good way to spend a day.

I visited here during a one day stay in Genoa and thoroughly eNjoyed it. The displays are very well done and the big fish tanks (sharks, porpoises, etc) are stunning. The sea front area where it is located is also close to the Galata maritime museum which is also definitely worth visiting

The aquarium is large, and well organized. The displays are nice, there is a touch pool and a dolphin show which I didn't like as I don't think this should be done to these magnificent animals (though my kid enjoyed it). Allow for two hours. There is a parking lot very close by, though it got full really quickly.

They have fish to look at, pretty big place, worth a visit. Even young kids loved it. Not many rare species but nice overall.

Thank Samael I
