I visited this place years ago when it had just openend and it was awesome. Now it looked old, poorly maintained and I saw several tanks that were crowded or the fish were way too large for the tanks they were in. Some of the...More

Came here on a stop during the city bus tour! €20 each for adults, so not too bad price! The aquarium itself was very small and crowded! Lots of fish, but the main attraction of the long tank was very busy! It’s worth a visit...More

Saw multiple dead fish. Don’t think bigger fish like sharks are well taken care of. Penguins looked depressed. Don’t support this aquarium by giving it your money

Hello, We regret your opinion. Maybe you saw the feeding time, where we feed the animals, the Sharks feed fish. Fish is looking at for the biology department to keep in well healthy. Penguins have a control to control them. Best Regards.

We were visiting the aquarium with a baby and a toddler (3,5 years old), so we were quick :) stopped to watch the sharks, penguins and jellyfish longer. Either than that, i was a little bit disapointed by the variety of fish and other sea...More

It was a nice aquarium but don't expect to spend a whole day in there, we spent an hour max looking around. Also, they need to be clearer on their feeding times. We looked online and it said shark feeding between 12-1pm so we asked...More

Good morning, I am so sorry for the inconvenience. An aquarium is a highly delicate and constantly evolving environment, which means that feeding times can be altered in accordance with the needs of the marine animals and their welfare. It is true the tunnel is...More

If you never seen an aquarium before, you can pay 20€ for a ticket. But if you ever seen some fish, the 20€ for the ticket is not worth it. You can go to Genova aquarium. It’s the best in Europe.
