“A small gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

With a very unassuming exterior you wouldn't expect to find the place thriving with life of all sizes. The entrance fee might feel steep, but it is worth every penny. You will get as close to the animals as you can possibly wish, and every room has it's own surprises.

It is especially welcoming to children, with lots of activities and events.

“An Amazing Privately Owned Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

On a recent trip to Helsingborg my wife and I visited Tropikariet. We wished that we had our grandchildren with us. What we saw was an interesting array of animals and sea creatures in environments designed to be very similar to their real life environments. Although the staff was small, they were all very helpful in explaining what we saw. The owner is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the zoo and the animals that are there. Its amazing that he has done so much based on his own research and hands-on approach. In the states, the staff would be twice as big and probably not as knowledgeable!

“Keeps getting better and better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This indoor zoo and aquarium is amazing. And it is just as much fun for adults as for children. The owner and his staff are passionate about what they do and it really does show. If you go on a rainy day during the weekend or summer, expect it to be busy, but otherwise you've got the entire place to yourself.
