We wanted to go somewhere that kids enjoy so we decided on the aquarium. And we bought the tickets online. They were 25 % cheaper . Aside from the discount the fact that we didn’t have to stay in the line was a blessing. Inside...More

It’s not bad to while away a hour or two but honestly it’s a bit tired and dated and needs a refurbishment. A lot of the children interactive buttons not working. It’s fine if you have time to kill but otherwise you won’t feel like...More

I visited here with my 1 year old in January 2019. The entrance price - 20 euros - is quite expensive for what you get. The main attractions are the sharks, rays and penguins. They also make you pose for an enforced cheesy photo on...More

Defiantly overpriced and not worth the 20 euros for entry. A lot Smaller then expected, took approx 20 minutes to walk around the whole aquarium. Not a lot of variety of fish, waste of time and money unless you have small children... very disappointed.More

You keep seeing the same fishes and almost every animal looks like it’s dying. And some actually are dead. Worst 20 euros ever spend!! Never doing this again because I’m not paying to see dead animals and how bad they are taking care off. It’s...More

Hello, We regret that the visit did not meet your expectations and that you took away the perception that there was a dead animal. In fact, we have a very low mortality rate, much lower than in the wild. Best regards,
