  • It's not a simple Aquarium, but a real Citadel, well organized into distinct pavilions by theme. The spaces are large, clean environments, stunning tunnels. A must for anyone visiting Valencia.

  • Very nice but open areas are interspersed with aquariums indoors. And routes to various sites is not linear. Red Sea Pavilion closed unfortunately.

  • A very nice aquarium with a very large biodiversity. There's also a dolphin show. The system is great. You should allow a few hours to see everything. The prices of the restaurant was too high but for the offer.

  • Just amazing. Must see while in Valencia. Especially dolphins show and the ocean tunnel. One thing that we didn't like is the food in the restaurants in there which was bad and ridiculously expensive. But I guess that's normal for such kind of places. If you can - better bring some food with you. Also - if you buy tickets for Oceanographic and the science museum make sure you will have time to see it all. We couldn't see everything in the museum because we spent most of the time in Oceanographic.
  • There are no words to describe the sheer beauty of this oceanogràf me! one of the finest and best kept that I have ever visited. of course it's always overrun by school groups and tourists, it is always better to visit early in the morning, to see it all because it takes a whole day. have missed the dolphin shows and penguins, which unfortunately increasingly overlap! immediately informed of the times of the shows! some places are fascinating and make you feel a young Jules Verne 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea! @gargio76
  • It's interesting to go and see once. It's pretty big, with lots of fishes and other animals like crocodiles or flamingo, organised by the place where they come from. Also, the dolphins it's a must see. They have a few shows a day, so be sure you get the right hour. There might be a negative part for some of you, and that it's full of kids running and screaming all around the place :).
  • Amazing experience, one of the best part of the City of Arts and Science. Spent almost all day here, so much to see and enjoy. Better bring food from outside, you'll get thirsty and hungry and the availability inside is quite small (and expensive)
  • Aquariums are all right. Service is very bad. First we qued fourty minutes to buy tickets. Then we went for a lunch. Thirty minutes passed we are still in the que for buffet food - only two tills are open out of four, and this is during high season! Absolutely furious! Upd1. Ok, this is officially the worst aquarium visit. We have qued for exactly an hour for buffet. Upd2. We are in another que, now to the aviary. We've been to a number of zoos, aquariums, animal parks. Never experienced waisting so much time in the qued. Avoid Oceanografic it's not worth it.
