  • Especially children can fascinated for hours before the various pools on different topics (sea water, lakes,...) are available and watch the underwater world.

  • House of the sea is not only an aquarium, but so much more! Must look at the views from the top floor and enjoy the feeling in the jungle to be in the Troparien, after you have visited the giant tortoise and the other marine animals!

  • Interesting, but not sensational. Nice way to spend 3 hours in Vienna. In some places too much off but that's not so bad.

  • Fantastic place to visit with plenty to see. Fairly high in the tower is an indoor jungle with monkeys, free flying birds and plenty of tanks. The rest of the aquarium is also excellent.
  • Been to a lot of aquariums around the world, this has to be one of the worst. For what you pay, it is completely underwhelming. It is so small and so tight, especially during the weekend, you can barely turn breath. Also this building was a armored radar tower from the 40s, and is very small especially at the higher floors. On the top 3 floors there is only a small display on each floor. The so call highlight, the "Atlantic Tunnel", is only about 5 metres long and have limited amount of sea life. The only redeeming thing is the view. On the upper floors, you can walk outside and see a panoramic view of the city.
  • Very nice aqua zoo which also has bats and some other animals that are not exactly living in the water. As a plus you get a great view from the top of the building over the city.
  • Our toddler had a terrific time but the fun is not limited to kids. We got here searching for indoor activities in December and we had a good one. The belvedere point at the top is a must.
  • Great place for a visit, especially for kids. You can see Vienna from rooftop and see some cool animals and fish. Only the price seems a bit too high,other then that very cool place to visit.
