3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web
Acquario Civico, Milan's free city aquarium, is a great place to cool down and enjoy a variety of aquatic life. The Art Nouveau building is the third-oldest aquarium in Europe, built in 1906 for the International Exhibition of Milan. Inside, you'll find a number of salt- and freshwater exhibits, as well as photo galleries and traveling displays. Particularly notable is the freshwater mountain stream exhibit, which recreates the ecosystem within a snowmelt-fed stream. Here you'll see the high current and pebble bottom characteristic of this environment, along with the small, flat-bodied, or hooked-appendaged creatures adapted to it.

  • Property located within the Parco Sempione and upheld in a beautiful Art Nouveau building with some ornamental tubs outside. Friendly service staff, entrance ticket from the modest fee (5.00 €). The tubs are fifteen and maintained. Treat mostly Mediterranean marine environments and aquatic environments of Northern Italy (Lake and mountain stream, pond, Marsh, River, river mouth, fontanile, roggia). Too bad it was not possible to visit the winter garden upstairs. Patience. And after a visit to the Aquarium, a nice walk in the beautiful Sempione Park! AN IDEA FOR THE SUNDAY AFTERNOON.

  • I agree with the other reviews. It's okay to spend a few hours with family to see some fish to children without expecting maybe because there aren't many tanks as well as the fish. might cure some + the garden ... Beautiful style structure early ' 900 in downtown Milan. Value +.

  • Quiet, cool and pretty cheap. All information in Italian only.
  • It is a small but interesting aquarium! a nice attraction point for families with children. There is a variety of spieces that you can find in the lakes in the vicinity of Milan!
  • Very small aquarium. Good place to bring children.
  • A small treasure in the City. Recommended to anyone fascinated by waterworlds
  • Poorly maintained not many aquariums very small. We were there at the end of april maybe off season but not impressive at all. Not worth the 5 euro they charged
