Terrific way to spend a few hours on a rainy day

Previous reviews had said to allow 3 hours- my little guy was done in 1.5 with the exhibits and then spent another 30 in the play area and feeding the fish. Really enjoyed it... read more

Great place to visit, lots to see, lots to keep the kids interested, types of fish etc we had never seen in an aquarium in the UK. It provides a kids interaction zone as well.

Previous reviews had said to allow 3 hours- my little guy was done in 1.5 with the exhibits and then spent another 30 in the play area and feeding the fish. Really enjoyed it- especially the conveyor belt you stand on the move the the big fish tanks. Very fun!

We went to the Aquarium to take a rest in the afternoon after doing a lot of walking and sightseeing. It was advertised everywhere and we even got 4 euro promotion per person. But still it was incredibly expensive. I was in an aquarium in London, England and Boulogne-sur-Mer, France and both were incomparable. The one in Barcelona is kind... More

The Aquarium is at the heart of everything in Barcelona with easy access and very good parking. The great thing is that it is not overwhelmingly big but big enough to keep kids entertained for a couple of hours. It's well maintained and very attractively laid out. You can also go a couple of times as there is enough to... More

I was so sad to visit here and find the tanks to be so small for the size of fish. The only larger tanks, were those housing the sharks. A lobster, for example - is kept in a tank only 1.5x it's size. Penguins....were kept in a very small enclosure with no space to run around and NO access to... More

Advertised as the best aquarium in Europe I was very disappointed with the collection. What was on show was interesting and on the whole well presented but there are definitely better collections else where. I was concerned with the penguins who in effect were in just a large tank with no outside space, fresh air or enough water to swim... More

We visited with our toddler. It was quite an enjoyable experience, however I think the entry price is relatively high for the time that we spent here. The moving platform that goes around the main tank was great.

Was here with my niece and was slightly disappointed. I have been to many aquariums around the globe as it is one of my favourite things to do. The variety of sea life is wonderful, staff are friendly and the disabled access is second to none. I have given it 3stars because the layout is very strange indeed, the tanks... More
