  • The most well maintained and thought out of all the aquariums we visited (London, Berlin, Brighton). Tea station excellent with sea otter is incredible, so great to see them in real life.

  • Very nice Aquarium! The best and biggest I have seen so far. Several shark species. Unfortunately it is really cold, rainy and windy, so the otters who just this day looks best from the outside isn't getting many minutes. It is crowded inside! It is true that weekend, but off-season. Very ample parking and yet it feels like it's a little too much people sometimes. The restaurant has good, tasty food. OK price. But the fish and chips to children with one (1) small small fish, and a big pile of French fries is not ok. It's crowded at lunch time in the restaurant, table, you get to wait on. You should hire a Swedish to review the Swedish translation of the plates. Sure, one understands anyway, but it would have been nicer with a bit less Google Translate.

  • Very well organized aquarium with a good show of plenty of animals in different seas. Free with Copenhagen ticket, or pre-booked ticket is recommended

  • Very good exhibition. The fish are fantastic Architecture is aesthetic bit the function suffers from bottlenecks. The stream of people doesn't flow well when the place is busy. Restaurant serves food of high quality but it is a bit pricey. Be warned that you exit through the gift shop. This is a nightmare with kids. The exhibits carries it to a good review
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great fun. Lots to do. Good family day out. Good value annual pass.
  • If you've been here once, you have pretty much seen it all. It's probably a nice place to kids, to learn about different fishes / aquatic lives from around the world, and the giant aquarium is also entertaining to see, but there are not much events / activities / changes around here, and the entrance fee is quite pricey
