“Short but sweet”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Not a large aquarium but the tanks they had were well presented and well labelled. All were clean and it was a good sample of local sea life in a nice setting. Maybe 30 minutes for a quick look to 60 minutes if you take an interest in the creatures. A good place to get away from the sun for a few minutes and i'm sure kids would enjoy it. I don't regret going at all. If you go on a day trip to Porec however I would recommend that you stay away.

“Nice display of the Adriatic sealife and fauna”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

A short but informative introduction of the animal sealife of the Adriatic. I do believe we payed 30 kuna a ticket. A bit steap for some aquariums in two rooms might be some peoples judgement. Still an experience worth your while I think.

“Do not expect much”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Some fish, some crabs. 20 minutes. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. And although tripadvisor is asking me to put more then 50 characters, I cannot think about anything else :)

“Rovinj aquarium”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

It is a simple and small aquarium, but really shows you what can be found in the Adriatic Sea. My daughter ( aged 10 ) enjoyed it very much. About a half hour family program, with reasonable ticket prices.

“Plenty to entertain”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We visited here after one of our trips was cancelled due to strong winds, and we were not at all disappointed. There are many species to see in the small aquarium and the octopus kept us amused when it came out of it's hiding place. It was good to get a close look at some of the marine life in the area (fish, starfish, octopus and large pen shells). We were in there for an hour with our 3 year old, who wanted to look in the tanks again and again. It was lovely that it wasn't crowded as it made it easy to see all the tanks and it was a bargain at just 20kn to get in.
