Zero COVID-19 control
Aug 2020
It’s hard to believe that a tourist attraction can be so unaware and oblivious to the restrictions required to operate and ensure customer safety in these times.
The queue to enter was a warning sign of what was to follow with people crammed into a small area. It was raining so this just exacerbated the problem. We spoke to a member of staff who then decided to try and organise the mess in front of her but only after we had complained.
She fast tracked us to enter the aquarium but unfortunately things were no better inside. No staff to ensure necessary distancing or assistance.
100 metres in we decided to turn around and head to the nearest exit.
If you are at all concerned or aware of COVID-19 you should avoid this place.

Turtle power!
Sep 2019 • Family
We visited the Aquarium yesterday and had a great time! We took the train from Pisa to Livorno Centrale and then took the LAM Blu bus to the Terrazza Mascagni stop. When you get off the bus, just walk forward and you’ll see the Aquarium in front of you. The bus ticket cost €2.50. The journey itself was nice and easy and we did this with our 1 year old son.

Lovely Aquarium but a bit disappointing with the size of it. We stayed for about an hour and had a brilliant time. Definitely recommend a visit if you’re thinking of it.

Worth the visit
Aug 2019
It is a great setting at the waterfront. As any other aquarium around the world, it is a bit pricey but there is a lot to see and great fun for kids. Certainly worth the visit

Good time with the kids
Apr 2019 • Family
Good place to spend a couple of hours with the kids when it’s raining. I found the other comments saying it’s small unfair. There are plenty of small tanks a 4 massive tanks with lots of different fishes and sea creatures. Everything is explained in english. The the biggest tanks there are massive turtles and sharks! Then upstairs there is an amazing exhibition on ants and a panoramic terrasse to have a look at the town. On critique though: i thought 17euros per adult and 11euros per kid (between 1.4m and 1m high) was quite pricey...

Fun but small aquarium
Aug 2018 • Family
We went to escape the heat instead of the rain. It's just big enough but the price is a bit high. On the second floor there are some lizards and frogs they are nice to watch and throughout the floor you can track ants that's a very nice feature!

Overpriced for what it offers
May 2018 • Couples
The aquarium is simple by most standards. Definitely some interesting fish and the sea turtles were absolutely worth it. If it had been 10 euro a person, I would have thought it was worth the money, but at 14 - it is a bit overpriced.
Also is quite small so only killed an hour.

A nice trip to get out of the rain!
May 2018 • Family
We visited the aquarium with our two young sons as it was one of the only indoor age-apporpatie activities in Tuscany! Our elder son (2.5) really enjoyed the aquarium, especially the giant turtles. There was also a creepy-crawlie exhibition upstairs. It is a good size, but not massive; perfect for our son. Our sons were both free, so it was 14euros each for the adults, so a reasonable price for a few hours.

Such nice attraction for your kids in Tuscany
Jan 2018 • Family
The Livorno Acquarium is such nice attraction if you re in Tuscany with your children and especially if you have a raining day to spend.
It is not that big and for this is even easier for kids enjoy it.
The open pool let kids to see the fishes and even to touch the ray fishes.
On the first floor you can visit the reptile section which is nice too.
The cost is 14 € per adult.
Children under 1 m tall are free of charge.
