This aquarium is an unforgettable tour for anyone visiting Alesund, even for those who are not traveling with children. The aquariums are very beautiful and diverse and in the outdoor part, the infrastructure is being increased, but we have already been able to see tanks with seals and penguins.

The aquarium wall of big fish from the Atlantic should be reason enough to come back! We experienced the mid-day feeding of the fish (they say that at Christmas Time Santa himself feeds them), and will never forget it.

Interesting if sea life is your thing or if you need something to do on a rainy day in Ålesund. I think the inside area used to be better before, but outdoors they have really made some great changes. The feeding of the penguins was a fun experience but the seal "show" should also have been performed in both Norwegian... More

Great aquarium, excellent diver show. Great range of sea life, good information cards, the English commentary for the shows was excellent. As an aquarium enthusiast, I appreciated it immensely.

We went to this aquarium and had a really nice tour through the building. Nice fishes to see, good clear signs in English too. The penguin show was really nice and understandable because it was also in English. The seal show was only in Norwegian... Not one word in English! When we came to the souvenir shop, the lady at...

I really enjoyed my visit to the aquarium. Lots of different sea creatures and signs in Norwegian and English about the inhabitants. The diving/feeding show at 1pm shouldn't be missed. The talk was incredibly informative and entertaining (for big and little kids). A must see in Alesund!

The Atlantic sea park is an amazingly fun but ,also educational day out for families . Lots to see , but also of interactive fun for children getting to handle various sea creatures , and fishing for crabs . In the main tank ( which is huge ) you can watch a diver feeding the fish in the tank once... More

Excellent and funny penguin feeding was a highlight of our visit. Apart from that, I would say it is better than most of European aquariums as there is more space both for visitors and for fish and even if you are visiting on sunday afternoon with many locals, you will not mention the crowds. No big attractions are present but... More

Great place to get to know more of the ocean's life. Watching the diver feeding the fish was amazing and the same goes to the penguin's lunch time!
