It is a big place to take a look at species you do not see usually. There is a 'touch touch' area where the kids (and adults) can touch with their hands sea stars and others animals.

Nice aquarium with a lot of fishes and lizards in a wonderful place, close to the city, one of the most beatiful cities in the North of Spain.

I went to visit the aquarium in Gijon because I like seeing little lizards and fish swimming about. This was ruined for me by the larger animals being kept in tiny enclosures. There was an otter kept alone that looked quite distressed. Running in circles constantly. It didn’t seem normal. Also the penguins looked stressed with no real escape from the audience. I like going to zoos and aquariums but i don’t like seeing animals in obvious distress. I wouldn’t come here again.

All types of beautiful exhibits, and you can even watch the feeding of the various animals (penguins, fish, etc.) located in the premises. Outstanding for all individuals, groups, and activities, but especially appealing to the "little ones". There is also a restaurant located in the facilities.

We didn't expect much from this small town attraction when we pulled up there, but after paying 50 Euros for a family of 5 we had a lot of fun wondering for more than an hour between the many fish tanks in the aquarium. It is designed as a trail you follow always around the main shark pool, and it kept the kids interested throughout our visit. Good fun for marine lovers!
