Overview
More
Sweden's largest inland aquarium has now opened in Motala. The aquarium consists of 8 pieces large cold-water aquariums where we particularly notice the three large concrete tanks of 3000, 5000 and 10,000 liters of water. The tropical part consists aquariums in size from 500 to 2000 liters with fish from South America, Africa and Asia. A new addition to the exhibition welcomes visitors at the entrance where you can watch the two so-called Tropicarium. The exhibition also consists of a series of information modules of the lake, topology of Motala Ström and a giant stand of stuffed birds from the lake

It hosted about 6-8 tanks with a few types of fish. Nothing really worth spending time in! Unless some kids are interested in fish.

We were a group of seven adults and an infant visiting the museum. It's run solely on entrence fees and goodwill so it's small and low scale but has a very interesting display of swedish fresh water fish. The tanks were well kept and the...More
