Great location!

The Aquarium is situated beyond the Mirador de Colom and has a great location on the pier which means you can enjoy some great views of the sea and surrounding areas of Barcelona... read more

I was shocked when I saw children playing and torturing stingray in a very small acquarium closed to pinguins!!. I highly do not reccomend this place. Also the price was too high and they want to make money on photos of your own face for 10e. At first lady are saying that it's for free (so you think that it's... More

Terrible place. Small aquariums, rude staff. Not worth the price, also they took photo on the beginning with saying it's for free and at the end want 10E for picture of your face. Not recommended.

Excellelnt aquarium, with a lot.of species to see and discover. It also has like a tunnel where you go through and the fish are above you swimming. Great experience, careful though not to go in the late afternoon as there are a lot of kids and they can be quite loud and might disturb you. Definitely a must see!!

The Aquarium is situated beyond the Mirador de Colom and has a great location on the pier which means you can enjoy some great views of the sea and surrounding areas of Barcelona before and after your visit. The Aquarium itself has quite an extensive number of species. My favourites included black and white tip reef sharks which I had... More

Myself and my boyfriend visited this aquarium on a dreary afternoon whilst on a long weekend vacation in Barcelona. It was easy to find, even for tourists who have no sense of direction. Although we thought the entrance fee was quite expensive we definitely thought it was worth the money. This place is really big, we spent a good few... More

it is a lovely place to visit, very busy, but definetely worth going to. If you are a sea lover it is the next close one to the real thing. It is amazingly situated just next to the pier, so when you are done you can rest, have something to eat (plenty to choose from) and watch the sun going... More

I'm a local and I decided to take of my kids, my 5 year old daughter for a different evening. I was absolutely shocked by the obscene price of the venue. There's no relevant discount for large families as we are, and the price for 1 adult and 1 kid ("reduced fee") was 29€: I find it a robbery. Might... More

This was my second visit and once again, I left with disappointment. For the price (€20) and overall rating, I don't think that it is worth going. I understand that families might have this attraction in mind, but I do believe there are better aquariums within Europe or even Spain. The first time I went, which was in 2014 I... More
