We had a fantastic time at the aquarium. All the exhibits were great & very interesting. Our favourite exhibit was the tropical section with the paranas & arapaima fish! We highly recommend checking it out. It's great for adults & children. M. CollectivelyME(dot)net

We took public transportation from the island in Copenhagen. easy to get there, with a short walk. The place was not busy, the displays were well done, and we got to see them feed the sharks. It was clean, and the exhibits were well done.
