Vale il viaggio anche se il biglietto è caro. Da nn perdere lo spettacolo dei delfini. You should go. You'll love it, even if the ticket is expensive. Do not loose dolfin show.

We spent a day here, was quite a big place with different kind of animals, marine, birds, butterflies... Especially fell in love with many different kind of medusas, they were just beautiful. There were quite many visitors at the same time so it was really noisy and at times peaceless. If you're planning to visit the museum of science nearby... More

We really enjoyed our visit. The aquarium is small but well done and a lovely cool break if it is hot outside.

We bought the entrance fee for Oceanografic with our tourist Valencia card, which is really good value, so definitely try to do that. Oceanografic is everything you expected. The dolphin show is amazing, and I've never seen so many fish in one day. Definitely worth seeing.

Would definately recommend when visiting Valencia. The whole area is beautiful and the Oceanografic is fantastic. A vast range of sealife can be found here. Around 15mins through Alameda from centre on bike and your there. Souvenir pic prices arent too badly priced compared to other places either. Plan for around 3hrs if you want to visit everywhere in the... More

Great place to spend your day at. You can learn about the sea species and even see them really close There are big glass tunnels surrounding you as you were in the bottom of the ocean, u can admire sharks, tunas,mantas, turtles, penguins and more..it is ore than a simple aquarium.

My cousin and I decided to spend the afternoon at the Oceanografic, that is supposed to be the largest aquarium of Europe, and first thing that we found a little bit out of proportion is the entrance fee. It was just over €29 per adult, which is quite a bit of money for a aquarium. Unlike families we only spent... More

Huge aquarium, with many different tanks representing different oceans and species. Highly recommend seeing the dolphin show, amazing to sit and see. Just make sure you go earlier to get a good seat. The place is big so make sure you have plenty of time to go and take it all in. Highly recommend.

I was a bit indifferent to visiting Oceanografic,as I'd read some lukewarm reviews, but my 15 year old daughter wanted to visit. It turned out to be one of the best things we did in Valencia. The tanks were large and clean and most were a decent size for the fish. We did watch the Dolphin show, but these shows... More
