    A small Exposition (Moscow Oceanarium anymore), sultry pavilions, it is possible to separately emphasize the dome inside the Aquarium, which accumulates carbon dioxide-be careful what you above, the more they be. Half of the pavilions is restaurants, so you can give the impression that a large aquarium. When enough of the high cost of cinema at an additional cost. In General, the sense of obmanutosti (probably because I have something to compare-like entertainment in Singapore by several orders of magnitude better

    Beautiful Aquarium, it could use some more shadow. Dolphin Watch must not necessarily be, certainly other ways for the research.

    As the truth is the longish day is done if you want to see it all but passed very entertaining xk are different things. To spend a day in this couple very well and you entertain quite interesting things, I first recommend l' hemisfèric which is the place as if it were a film that you put the peliculica, then visit the city of Arts and finally the Oceanogràfic which is very complete and is nice to see and take more time and do not miss the performance of dolphins which is very nice.

    Fantastic place. Book combined tickets with science museum for best value. Spent 8hrs here with 4 kids and they all rated it as best day of their 2 weeks in Valencia. Took in the dolphin show twice (catch and early one and a late one). We didnt bring food as website advised not to but you can. Food is reasonable inside. Did 4D cinema too... Great fun for all especially younger kids...although short enough.

    I sincerely think that those three hours that I spent there were exciting, even though they weren't enough for sure. This place is a must-see of Valencia, definitely something that deserves your time. Well organized, the maps they give you can easily guide you through all of the zones. Simply breathtaking.

    Nice place. We spent the whole day there. They have restaurants and vending machines inside but it's quite expensive. Better ask for a bracelet for re-entry at information desk and eat in the big Carrefour mall across the street. Be careful in the toilet, some flush buttons are not functioning.

    Very nicely done, with lots of different paths to go from one venue to the next. Good infrastructure, easy accessible even with a small child and stroller! We were there in low season and it was perfect! I don' t want to know how it is in high season, as the staff at the information booth, at the bar and in the restaurant was disorganized and slow. Be aware of the food! I rarely ate so bad before! Awful noodles (made with ketchup?), cold and in old oil fried fries, way too long cooked swordfish and no taste to any of it!!! Bring your own, if you can, or buy some chips from the store. It' better and cheaper!

    Me and my boyfriend we spent nearly a whole day (4-5 hours). They even have lockers to put your suitcase. Reasonable price of canteen located inside as well. My favorite is butterflies house! I never visited a butterflies house with real butterfly flying around you. Secondly was dolphins shows and beluga house. The 4D cinema was a scam. Very disappointed no substitute in English. If I could be given the chance, I can write a better film than that. Still, in conclusion, very pretty paths and every thing is Cozy. Love the place in general!

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
