It’s not a very large Aquarium but it’s got lots going on. It’s well worth a visit if you happen to be in North Zealand. Not many Aquariums where you get to touch the fish and feed them.

This aquarium is only small but there are heaps of staff who speak perfect English and they are only too willing to share their knowledge to tell you about the displays. The highlight was the touch-pools where you can handle the starfish, flatfish, crabs and...More

1 star, not because it is terrible, but it is really small. It is fine to go there after you visit the castle in Helsingor, but don't expect too much.

This is a quite small aquarium and you can see it all in less than an hour. But it is definitely worth visiting. The staff is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable - maybe because the museum is run by the University of Copenhagen...

We went there for our 4 years daughter. It was a short and expensive experience. Not same price like Blue planet, but 65 DKK/adult and 45 DKK/kid was too much for what they offering. They have something around 20 fish tanks from which 30% are...More
