  • I went as a solo traveler and still enjoyed my fairly quick visit. The penguins are outside and you can get pretty close to them so I really enjoyed this. They and the sea lions (also outside) seemed ...  more »

  • The Bergen Aquarium was a brilliant experience, an icing on the cake of our winter stay in Norway. The sea lions, penguins, seals, fish and reptiles - admirable exhibits of beautiful nature. You will benefit from having bought the Bergen Cards first to save some precious Krone on entry. Fun for kids, you can touch the small sea organisms, yet the water is darn cold, tho. Great aquariums with starfish, sharks, salmon, and what not. Amazing colours and shapes, urging yet again the visitors to protect the nature whenever they can. If one feels hungry, a restaurant is available.
  • It was nice, but no sharks, nor delphines. Penguins were awesome though. Great place for kids.
  • Better and much more interesting on pictures than in reality. But as there are not so many attractions in the city for kids, it's a place for going at least somewhere.
  • Super expensive but otherwise excellent. Shop could be bigger. Restaurant staff more up for the task (waited 10 min without any waitress caring to come by in a about 50 seats restaurant during lunchtime)
  • Great place to come by with kids. Quite fun outside unless it's freezing. ;) Loved the shark tunnel and the aquariums.
