When we have been there there was eastern holidays, it was cloudy of people and it was difficult to see the fishes. The price of the entrance it's quite expensivem it's good to have a family day all together in the area and if you are fish lovers I guess you will enjoy more than me

A big aquarium with a great variety of organisms. A visit that someone who loves the sea will enjoy. I would not consider it a must though.

Wanted to give our 10 year old a special treat for his birthday. "Diving with Sharks" fit the bill. For 150 EU pp, the aquarium puts you in full scuba gear and into the shark tank. Initially you are in a cage (well, kind of cage) and can watch the 8+ft sharks swim by. Then the guide takes you out... More

We spontaneously strolled past the aquarium and decided to check it out. It seemed quite expensive to enter untill we reached the shark-tunnel which was awesome!

We have seen several aquariums with our daughter and this was a bit disappointing. Still you have a chance to see many kinds of fishes and other sea animals from different earth zones. The biggest and most impressive was the huge aquarium with sharks, eagle rays and mantas. You could see there animals swimming over you. I recommend to go... More

We thought that it was quite expensive for 2 of us, so it would cost a lot for a family. It wasn't as big as we thought and although it was busy, it didn't take us long to get round it. The shark tunnel was good as you can stand on the moving walkway to go through it. Food was... More

We had a discount voucher and it still cost us about 60 euros to get in (2 adults and 2 children). The walk-through shark tunnel was good and our youngest loved the interactive submarine area at the end, but to be honest we went round the whole thing in less than 2 hours.

Aquariums are always a big success with our kids, no question, but this one had nothing special, considering how much we paid for the tickets. Honestly, my kids had more fun in Casa Battle than in the aquarium. I wouldn't come back if I were visiting Barcelona again.

Once you are inside such an attraction you could be anywhere in the world. This aquarium is no more spectacular than any other we have visited. It also did not house the widest collection of sea creatures we have ever seen either. It doesn't compete with some of the US aquariums (Boston or Monterrey for example). We are also not... More

Went around noon. Not the best time as it turned out. Lots of people and since the exhibit space is actually pretty small it got very crowded and hot. Hard to get a good view of the aquariums. Had hoped for something more educational on marine life.
