    Quite small aquarium
    This Aquarium is quite small. Those who have visited, for example, the aquarium in Toronto, will probably be disappointed here. In several smaller aquariums you can see fish and flora from the Baltic region, there is also an Amazonia section and aquariums depicting coral reefs. There are moray eels, a small crocodile and also two large snakes to be seen. At the time I was there (at noon) there was no queue for tickets but there were a lot of people inside. I think it is certainly not a highlight attraction in Gdynia, but if you like this type of attraction, the Aquarium is definitely worth a visit. Ticket costs 35 zł.

    In general nice
    It's definitely worth a visit when you're already in Gdynia. The exhibitions are nice and interesting. I really enjoyed being there. But if I would have my psychic glasses on this day I would think twice to specially drive there. First of all there's no special parking area for the aquarium. It's paid street parking. And the aquarium is located in the end of a busy beach boulevard. So had to drive around 30 minutes to get a place. The ticket queue was kinda same long and annoying. The aquarium itself was very crowded, but tolerable. Most of the information on the walls is in Polish. So good place to blow off the dust from your Polish skills and get into it. So in general nice, but too many #¤% side effects.

    Nice place. Must see :-)
    Nice place to visit with children. Even 2 years old child was happy to see such exposition. Unfortunately it is not such big and rich as in f.a. Barcelona, but quite nice and cheap.

We didn't see the horrible petting zoo type tank where children were allowed to touch the fish I saw when I visited as a kid but they boast about it in their Google "about" section.
There was a lot of big reptilian animals. A small crocodile (don't remember the breed) was a in a tank WAY too small for it. There were two anacondas in a tank, too small for one, together! They showed signs of mental anguish and one had an awful injury - the tip of its tail missing. I wonder if it happened while they fought, as that is likely to happen when kept together in such conditions. There was a huge turtle, again in a tiny, unstimulating, boring tank. Small sharks in a different tank were so bored one kept swimming in circles and another just lay on the ground, looking miserable. Seeing all these creatures in such tiny, boring, unsuitable conditions broke my heart.
I approached a young, female security guard at the end, asking if I could speak to someone to complain. She literally LAUGHED at me and lied, telling me to email an email that doesn't exist. We didn't spot any staff throughout the whole aquarium apart from the few security guards at the beginning and end. No one to stop kids banging on glass, nothing. I was so upset by the end, it ruined my day.
As a Polish citizen, I am ashamed such a place is allowed to exist in my home country, my home area.

I went there with my daughter and nice, We were totally disappointed, For this price I expected much more. Gdansk Zoo is more or less the same price, but you can spend there all day. Here is maximum 1 hour. Few nice fish and that's all. I was in Kiev and Lisbon aquarium and it was much better.

Of course this cannot be comapred to Monaco or other such aquariums. But it will get you 30-60 minutes of entertainment and kids loved it. Also, the price is a fraction of what other such places cost. The low price attracts some trashy guests so atmosphere is not great.

This place could be really interesting, but it was not prepared for the tourists (maybe post-covid). Some exhibits were broken, the interactive model of Baltic sea was not working properly. Since the season is just starting, it will probably get even worse in the summer.

There are so many Kids visiting this Aquarium, shouting and running everywhere, it seems to be at a kindergarden. There are Just few english translations about fishes wich it makes harder the appreciation of the place. I raccomend this place to familys in holiday.

The Gdynia Aquarium gives a somewhat old impression, both from the building itself and the way to exhibit the fishes and natural history objects. Still, it is a charming and interesting place, with unusial species like a carnivore turtle (!) and with a underwater landscape model of the Baltic Sea (topographic) that gave us a few surprises even concerning our native coasts (Norwegian and Swedish). Especially on a rainy day it is a great place to bring your kids.

Our family visited this Aquarium in July and we were quite impressed. The first floor was a little lacking but the rest of the floors were fantastic. Unbelievable amount of ocean species and fish which we have not seen before. Well worth a visit to see some of the best coral reef displays I have seen in an Aquarium. We went an hour before closing so it was not busy and we did get a chance to see everything.

Walked by this aquarium while walking the boardwalk. It was fairly cheap so we thought we’d give it a shot. It aquarium is pretty small but has some very interesting creatures throughout. We traveled when there was multiple schools so there was a bunch of children running around. There is an outside little patio that’s very nice. I think they usually have lunch or gelato but they were closed when we went. Overall it was interesting and I would recommend if you’re nearby.

A couple of animal cruelty concerns with a lowly crocodile in a tiny tank and a large turtle in an equally restricted tank.

Other than that it's a dissapointing mediocre aquarium. The educational sections for kids are only in Polish. For some reason the observation tower has restricted all views of the area. The tanks they do have, have are well maintained but they are a world behind what most other tourist aquariums have to offer. As you leave you're ferried through the gift shop which is tiny and limited to tat you can get anywhere.

At a push it's something to do on a rainy day but I'd have reservations due to the animal cruelty concerns.
