  • I loved every second of the visit. Species of fish I didn't know, what blew me away was being able to take photos very close to the shark screen, watch close-up the penguins cavorting in their quarter...  more »

  • Great Aquarium. Near to the World Trade Center, this place is easily accessible from any part of the city. The fishes and other aquatic animals are really nice. They are taken care nicely and the aquarium for each aquatic animals is distributed perfectly. The major attraction for me was the Penguins, and there were a lot of them very healthy and maintained nicely. The over the glass aquarium is also worth a watch with large fishes as sharks. Worth a watch with thr price they charge at.
  • While a beautiful exterior, the majority of the interior feels very dated and a little dingy. It was a great way to spend some time and the kids enjoyed it. The price was a bit steep for the overall quality of the exhibits. Make sure you find a coupon from one of probably a dozen different locations to save you a couple of Euros. If you're from North or South America, you'll get a chance to see lots of unique species that you can't see back home. Hopefully they'll keep updating the interior and make this a came miss attraction.
  • Worth a visit for sure. Lots of salt water fish from tiny ones all the way up to sharks. They have a glass tunnel so you can walk through the shark enclosure and they also have some lizards and poison dart frogs etc. The final part has penguins. This could be sign posted better as we nearly missed it!
  • If you are sea lover or travelling with kids it's worth going to the aquarium. The main attractions are white/black tip sharks and tiger sharks. The entry to the place was around 20 euro which I think was a bit expensive . There are feeding times for different fishes which you can enjoy and there are penguins there as well. There is a food hall inside where you can enjoy snacks and drinks. The reason for 4 🌟 is the price and what it offers for that . Tip - Kids will love it, if you have never seen sharks before you will love the close encounter with them ..
  • As Europe’s largest aquarium located along the Mediterranean, admission to this place was fairly cheap, and my experience here was great and memorable. There’s always events happening every hour of everyday. But at the same time this place is one of Barcelona’s popular tourist attractions, so it does get crowded here at times. Nonetheless, I loved spending time here and I definitely recommend stopping by here when in Barcelona.
