This was included in our Barcelona Pass tickets, so we decided to stop by and check it out. Very happy we didn’t have to pay, but wish we would’ve spent the time elsewhere. If you haven’t been to an Aquarium before, then by all means,...More

Having read that it's one of the biggest in Europe, it wasn't as big as we expected. The shark tank was impressive though and it's a nice aquarium. It was nice that you can still buy one souvenir photo which we did. You can also...More

I am an avid fan of aquariums. I found the Barcelona Aquarium interesting but not at a world class level. I believe that the admission price is a bit high for what you get. After going to this aquarium, I then went to the Lisbon...More

The aquarium is nice to visit for 2-3 hours and see all the sea creatures and fish display. The display is quite rich and there are many different things to see.

A really good place to go with children or family! I would expect more different fishes. There is one big aquarium with a escalator that’s nice for little children, it’s going slow and around one big aquarium instead of different ones. They do have different...More

Enjoyable afternoon out but when we we re there it was really busy. There were people 3-4 deep at every exhibit. Going early in the day and not on a weekend would have been better.

Apart from the tunnel below the main tank, a rather dull experience, particularly with many small tanks missing any info, many empty, the penguin area small and sad(maybe you can get some inspiration from the Lisbon's Oceanario) etc
