Loved the layout, it's just too small! that is why I have to put 4*'s instead of 5

Have visited better aquariums in Europe but this one is also good if you are with kids and have a couple of hours to spare. Kids will enjoy the sea creatures and some activities going on there. Do go to the indoor rainforest and also...More

Beautiful exhibits an abundance of sea life, excellent displays. In all a very nice place to visit with family. Very educational. Many sharks and rays and a huge variety of fish.

In my opinion, that's one of the places you have to visit if you are in Copenhagen. It has a number of aquarium corridors with fish and corrals, a tank with fun and playfull otters and a massive indoor tropical garden full of batterflies! Overall...More

This aquarium is okay - I've been to several that are better but it's decent enough to spend an hour or two. It was a madhouse on the weekend. I'd go on the weekdays if you can.

This was so unexpected, this was a experience and I would give it 100/100 it was one big surprise, more than I expected. The large tank, you stood and you were mesmerised, we stood and watched the fish( sharks, Ray's and lots more)

Den Bla Planet is the same thing as the National Aquarium, so don't get confused by reviews for both places. It located about a five minute easy walk from the metro station at Kastrup and is signposted from the exit. There is disable access all...More

This was reasonably cheap. Its quite good value. Make sure you look at the schedule to see when there is a talk about the creatures and see them be fed. Good fun and easy to reach via the metro.

Access is easy from the metro station. Walk up the street on the right after you exit the station, there is a small shop and restaurant on the left of the street. Keep walking straight ahead to busy road with traffic lights, cross the road...More

Ordinary, uninspiring aquarium. The architecture was more interesting than the fish! The layout was confusing, dark and not geared up for foreigners so signage was a problem. The website makes the place look spectacular but I found it mediocre
