  • To see! Bring the kids both small and large is a unique spectacle. Every corner reserve news and various species do not seem doubtful as other places. Just half a day. The dolphin show is amazing. Don't miss anything. Visit both indoors and outdoors.

  • Great place, worth of time and money!!! Check the timetables of dolphin shows. We enjoyed it very much! 
  • You don't need to be passionate about fish, the Oceanograhic is a spectacular place. Many tanks full of fish colortatissimi of all sizes and shapes, seals and sea lions, the beautiful beluga and crocodiles, an all-seeing and even birds volverá penguins with snow! Also really enjoyed our 1 year old son, especially in the tunnel where you're surrounded by fish.

  • 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.
