  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Its small, but worth the money to get in. You end up being able to get very close to the animals
  • I really love to go to Zoos or botanic gardens with animals (altought they have to be treaded and kept correct and not just at a minimu standard). here i had a very bad feeling as i saw the reptile habits. they were very small. example: Phelsuma grandis cage was only 40cm 70cm and only 100cm height - this is absolut shabby for a so called "zoo". as well the other day gecko - which i couldnt see, it was very dark and the habit only had one (!!!) basking spot on it - which is absolut a no-go for a gecko - and again for a so caled Zoo even worse. as well i think the habits of the reptiles could be done more creative, if i see plastic plants in the corn snake cage or other snake habits i could puke. i mean, its a zoo and should be an example! on the other hand they have a so called "tropical garden" which was, first of all very dirty and a bit stinky, which can not be. I would recommend to reconstruct or redesign this tropical garden so that some of the geckos or other harmless reptiles could get around free in there which would be a lot more easier for you guys and as well it would be better for the anmals. furthermore i've seen some dead fishes (i will attach the images, since you will refuse my statement. one fish was just laying around on the floor sidewards and heavy breathing - other fishes "snuggled" close to him. in summary: the visit made me feel very sad for the animals. some of them showed stranged behaviours, i would say because of boringness and no changes in their habits. some of the habits were just not living, they are dead, with alive animals in it. think about it. 2 stars because you do inform people about nature and our responsibility as humans to look after the nature. i'm not sure, but the sign at the entrance made me a bit angry and confused. it tells that you concern about the animals and all that, but is it really necsecairy to have all these flat screens for animal descriptions? wouldnt it just do a sign which doesnt use electricity, and with the saved money you could give the fishes better habits - more coralls, more changes and possibilities to move.....
