“Fascinating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Very well thought out with a good variety of species including penguins, birds, sea otters, etc. Nice location adjacent to a very large shopping centre with plenty of places to eat outside of the city. The cable car ride on the front was very good.

The ticket is expensive,but when you see all the fishes, you forget about it! I mean it is the second largest ocenarium in the world. You will never see something like this.

“Great experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

I went to the Oceanario expecting to spend one hour or two of a rainy day. But the experience was so great that I stayed there for more than 4 hours! It is not only fascinating for kids, but also really interesting for adults. Totally recommend it!!

“Great Aquarium Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great display, tanks and information, in a modern facility.
One of the best aquariums in Europe.
It is a 20 min. taxi ride from the center of the city, but worth the trip. Great modern shopping mall nearby.
