  • The Aquarium is well but let's be honest, it falls short. The facilities are very nice and are very well-kept. And what they have is worth, but it is certain that visits it in no time. If you go with children have many activities that seem very funny, clear that in Danish

  • This place is very worth to visit when you are in Copenhagen, affordable, easy to buy tickets online, recommended! Good coffee spots in place, however, than rather expensive. But the big picture is awesome!!

  • Prize of architecture in 2013 with a few otters that are a charm, in winter it is difficult to watch the show on the outside, the tour is done in 1.5 hours

  • This is a neat place with some well done rooms. Marine life from around the world, including a nice East African Rift lakes display. A lot of info on sharks! Though many of the other exhibits could use some more expert information to showcase facts and emphasis on learning. It's mostly lists otherwise. If I were to make it better, that is what I would advise. If you see and read everything, it could take a couple hours. Room for improvement, but worth going.
  • A very nicely done place where you can see and learn a lot. The live feedings are very interesting as they don't only feed the animals there but also explain a bit about them. Also the aquariums are extremely clean and some of them are quite big. We visited on a Monday afternoon, the place didn't seem to be too crowded, still it was quite noisy as some kids where quite loud. I'm not sure how noisy it gets when the place is really filled up with visitors. It seems like a good place to take your kids, as they had quite some fun there. It may not be optimal in case you prefer a rather quiet ambiance.
  • Wonderful aquarium with loads of stuff to see. Prices are okay, even for food (which was excellent btw) at the restaurant. Not too bad to get to even if walking from the train station/airport and if lazy, there is a metro train which will make it even quicker. Well worth a visit!
  • Nice displays. However, annoyingly crowded (although I was there on a Friday afternoon, end of July along with a fair amount of tourists). With a 5 year old, there's about 1,5 hrs of entertainment. 170 DKK for adults and 90 for children >3 years is pricey. This is something to do no more frequently than once every three years or so
  • Great place to spend some quality time with kids.Very friendly staff.They can answer nearly every question you or your kid have. Every 30 min or so there are different shows with fish and sea animals. And of course there are thousands of fish. We really enjoyed a Saturday in Den Blaa Planet.
