  • 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 It is old an outdated, there are many better aquaria around these days, and it only held our interest ...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.

  • We took our kids here for my daughter's birthday while visiting family. The kids had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the shark tunnel. Being outside during feeding time is key! We were quite thrilled at the close proximity we were allowed to be in while checking out the wildlife.
  • Lots of fish from all over the world, both local and tropical. There are two cute sea lions who do a show. You can also touch snakes during the tropical presentation.
  • Went with my family. We were really impressed with the area where you can touch the fish. The entrance fee is quite high.
  • 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!
  • Nice aquarium, lots to see and lots of information presented in a lovely way. The animals seem happy, and the price was reasonable for how much you get to see.

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.
