This is the largest aquarium in Europe and well worth a visit! There are many colourful fish including a sunfish, birds including penguins and puffins and also sea otters.There are also many educational displays.
A great day out for all the family:)

One of the biggest aquariums in Europe, It's bid and spacious, very nice to walk arround and see the exhibition. It's nicely located by the waterfront with easy access and a lot of praking spaces.

We're from California, so a visit to an aquarium wasn't really on our list of things to do. But the kids wanted to go, so we went. WOW! Very nice! Similar to other aquariums we had been to, but different species, some I had never seen before. The tickets were purchased through our hotel, so we got a bit of a discount. Cab fare to and from was around 20 Euro. I think we spent around 40 Euro for 1 adult and 2 kids under 13. Afterwards, we walked along the harbor's edge and found lots of great places to eat and visit.

The exhibits were nice. There was a temporary exhibit of sea turtles that was excellent. But also the permanent exhibits were good. Several exhibits were targeted for kids so it is definitely family friendly.
