For 20 euro pp it was a little steep, some tanks were very small - not a problem, but tended to be bottlenecks of patrons which meant we missed a lot. The moving walkway was great - means that everyone can have a look in...More

We visited just for fun.. the aquarium was great.. large, lots of tanks and different types of sea life. A long moving walkway surrounded by an enormous tank on all sides and above you. This tank was filled with stingrays, huge fish and sharks. This...More

Despite the great reviews, really quite a mediocre aquarium, especially for the price. Eur60 for a family ticket and honestly would’ve preferred to spend it elsewhere. The tanks a quite small and not extremely well maintained, some even seemed over-crowded. Signs and explanations aren’t clear...More

After deciding to visit the aquarium whilst touring Barcelona, I was left with nothing but disappointment. Why this had such great reviews I will never know. The whole place looked really untidy, the animals all looked docile and to be honest, in a bad way....More

Wasn’t what i have expected. And was a bit expensive for a small place like this. Wasn’t bad either for kids who didn’t visit such places before.

We took a break to slow down from the crowded streets of the Rambla. My husband enjoy animal and aquariums. This one was ok. The best attraction is the shark tunnel. Not much activities and obviously as adults it not a must do.

We had a great time slowly walking round looking at all the fish! It was really relaxing to just see them and learn about them. Would definitely recommend - however it’s slightly steep in price!
