  • Very nice; visit obliged above all if you are with children. It is the sea, steps away from the Barceloneta beach.

  • Visit necessarily. Huge Sharks swim over your head, and you eat on the escalator and see. We spent hours there. Very informative. A lot of people.

  • A nice Aquarium, fish, rays, sharks and exotic fish are present! but honestly expecting more, it is believed that this is the best aquarium in Europe, exhibitions do not so much as one would expect! but with children a visit worth!

  • Very beautiful aquarium. I saw lots of species, even sharks. I loved the corals and penguins. Very expensive when it comes to food, drinks and souvenirs.
  • This is a really nice aquarium. It is somewhat small but the animals are well cared for. We went in the end of July which is a peak tourism time so the aquarium was packed. We weren't able to enjoy it to its full potential. If you happen to be going to Valencia on this trip as well I would recommend skipping this aquarium and going to the one in Valencia.
  • Friendly service, kind guides. The tour is a bit smaller than expected but you can do the tour as much as you like. But more important the fish look in excellent condition. I took a behind-the-scenes tour and and witnessed the love and care the employees put in their work. The animals are in great hands. A must visit!
  • If it wasn't for a kind dad of 3 handing us a voucher for €16 off it would not have been worth the money. The Aquarium itself is a bit small and takes not too long to get around. That said, the conveyor belt around the tunnels is excellent especially when a shark meanders across the top of your head and the aquatic life in side exhibits are interesting. Food court overpriced with little customer service and staff that bite their nails then serve food. Yum. Children interested, learned new words and got new ideas of what to have with chips ;-)
  • A great place to visit in Barcelona, if you have time. There are a lot of species that can be seen. The coolest part is the tunnel.
