  • Show many different animal species. Rather small, but we are probably rather spoiled by Valencia and sea life Konstanz. Penguin and sea lions in very small pools. Cool for kids who like to touch starfish and anemones, etc...

  • Fun aquarium with lots of different animals, we found the show with the sea lions like best. This place is suitable for young and old and you spent here on average 2 hours. We felt that there are more shows were allowed to be given, in connection with the something more expensive entrance fee.

  • 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.
