I thought this was a complete rip off for £70 for a family of four. A few tanks of fish. Kids enjoyed it for about 20 mins and then got bored. They found the toy submarine to play in the best part

This is a good place if you have kids along with you. They will like various types of fishes. You can see some sharks and penguin. Couple of hours are good enough !

We were impressed particularly by the glass tunnel - an amazing "oceanic" experience! This Aquarium will impress everyone.

To say the least the €20 entry fee was a bit steep to begin with. Families were turning away due to the price. And if I’m honest it was the worst one I’ve ever been too. Me and my girlfriend visit these frequently when we...More

We enjoyed our visit to Barcelona's Aquarium. Having grown up watching Jacques Cousteau it was a lot of fun to see all those Mediterranean sea creatures up close. The only drawback for us is that we have seen penguins in the wild in South America...More
