    Very bad management of flows and fitting out mediocre: confined spaces and thronged unmanageable inside, nearly absent staff to check the correct flow of visitors so much that there was total delirium inside; people thronged and stopped both in front of the tanks in the corridors so as to make it impossible to see any installations, without the staff cares to fruition at least decent. Some tanks are light years away from new methods of management of wildlife that is forced in containers too cramped; Many also have a convex exterior that increases the size of the fish to make them more visible but without giving references to the observer of the real size. Interactivity proposal is of poor quality and reserved only for children, cutting out a large portion of the visitors. An experience to behold and not repeat.

    A few tanks, no explanation or workshop for children, some closed basins. Small, very overgrown, hopefully they will improve.

  • Nearly no live plants. Plastick plants everyshere. Even our small aquarium in Tampere Finnland has a way more professional approach to maintaining a healthy symbiotick enviroment for their fish. Boring water landscapes, the same plastick plants everywhere. A real dissapointment. Even the corals are face....
  • Really not very good but if it's free then go for it. Expect to be finished in 40minutes.
  • Nothing special, staff unfriendly and quite expensive. Avoid restaurant at ALL costs (expensive and awful food).
  • Enjoyable enough place to go, but felt like I was being rinsed for cash at every turn. Turned up and was charged €3 just to park. We booked online but couldn't print the tickets, so were charged €1 per ticket to print them when we arrived (why not scan the codes off my phone!?). Then of course you're sent through the shop on the way out into their restaurant ("BUY OUR STUFF!"), where of course you can only consume their overpriced, poor quality junk food, then they charged 20c for each sachet of condiment! We already paid €12.50 each just to get in! So overall, felt a bit cheated. Also felt sad for the conger eel at the start as it had too small a tank for such a big fish.
  • Small comapred to other aquariums with small variety of sea animals. Can't go inside with baby stroller, which is a big minus considering that one third of visitors come here with small kids. Price of €16 is not a lot for aquarium, but for what you get here is too expensive.
