“Some nice ship models and a few fish”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Not a bad choice if you encounter a rainy day in paradise but don't expect much. While the ship models are interesting the actual aquarium portion is rather small.

“Well worth a detour”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Pretty good attraction, all-in-all, a decent historical section, followed by a better than average aquarium, in a well designed exhibition space, not world-class, but doesn't disappoint.

A great mixture of history the old port, people, fishing and education aside from the stunning variety of fish
A must for children of all ages, including grown ups!!

“Loved the tunnel”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

It was raining, so we ventured to the aquarium! Interesting to see the display of fishing boats etc but the highlight was the tunnel where you could see the fish swimming around you. Some beautiful coloured fish!

“Lovely Aquarium ideal for when its raining”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Visited here as it was forecast rain.
Adults was €13 euro each, which we felt was adequate for the experience.
The first half of the aquarium is all about the history of SanSebastian port which we found very interesting but I would imagine kids would find very boring.
2nd half is the Aquariums which were great the underwater tunnel is extremely good fun.
