    Not a bad way of passing a couple of hours on a rainy afternoon but if the weather is good I would recommend getting out and about instead. There is a limited variety of fish and sea creatures and man...  more »

    £over £50 for an adult and a 14 year old, this was the only disappointment of our stay in Bergen. It is old an outdated, there are many better aquaria around these days, and it only held our interest ...  more »

    This was informative and fun for the whole family. We were on more feeds and sea lion show. A fit large space that does not take all day. Is recommended.

    Great place! Incredible variety of animals. Everything from Sea Lions to reptiles. Super family friendly, with shows that the whole family will love!. Im a local and i still go 6 times a year. The keepers and staff share a connection with the animals. The aquarium also a non-profit organization/business so there is no exploiting animals or customers. Go there, you wont regret!

    Very uninspired aquarium. Small tanks, only the standard fishes, nothing outstanding. Also, I missed a structure of the exhibition and a proper guidance through the different topics. Was expecting more of Norwegians largest public aquarium.

    Its small, but worth the money to get in. You end up being able to get very close to the animals

    Great place to spend a few hours. The price was a little steep, but one could see that the animals were thriving and the staff genuinely cared about their wellbeing. The restaurant eas expensive, but the quality of the food was a reflection of the price (read: good food). All information about animals and such was in both Norwegian and English.

    A good place, but a little bit small. There are a lot of special sea animals and sneaks. Most of them is beauty.

Where to stay in Bergen

As a major Norwegian city, Bergen offers accommodations--and just about everything else--at a high price. Try to stay in the picturesque Bryggen wharf area near the fish market, or in the city center. If you’re looking for lively nightlife, check out rooms close to the city’s university. To find less-expensive lodging, search for hostels in the city center and campsites just out of town. Alternatively, live like a local by staying in a small guesthouse.
