We have done a visit at the end of the program. 2 hours are more than enough to visit all the spots in the aquarium.

We visited here on a long weekend in Barcelona as we have been to a few other Aquariums and really enjoyed seeing all the marine life. It was a little small and very expensive, 20euro for an adult ticket unless you have a discount voucher was steep for what could have been done in an hour. The main tank is... More

For my three children, this was their favorite stop in Barcelona! It was a bit shorter than I anticipated to walk through, but full of gems to include sharks, sting rays and octopus! There were a couple of interactive stops along the way and a little play area for younger children to enjoy. Definitely recommend for parents with elementary aged... More

Most aquariums are quite expensive so the price didnt bother me much, but when we came out the other end and realised we had finished with the exhibits it was a little disappointing. we wasn't in there for that long at all. It was enjoyable when we was in there, just wish it was as big and more stuff to... More

Dear Uma, We regret that the visit did not meet your expectations. Thank you for your opinion anyway. We have 21 large aquariums on the bottom floor, among them the large Oceanarium with more than 11 sharks and on the top floor, the "Planeta Aqua" and "Explora", with penguins, piranhas and many others species. In total about 11,000 specimens from... More

We saw this place by accident so we thought what the heck, we give it a try. The prices was like everywhere.. Expensive. 20euro per person over 10 yrs old. And children under 10 was 15 euro. Well for us it was 80 euro right away 😂. But wow! Inside it was amazing. All the sting rays, fishes and sharks.... More

Dear Sofia, Thanks for your opinion. We are glad that you liked it. Regarding the subject of penguins, they can sometimes offer a little care, especially when they are changing the feathers, but the truth is that they are very well, and even find the ideal conditions to reproduce. As for the bracelets or flanges they carry, there is nothing... More

Yes, the aquarium is expensive but we always visit,as part of a tradition, the aquarium in any major city that has one. The shark tunnel was very good and I loved the large sun fish. I also liked the Mediterranean fish area. This perhaps would be expensive if you had several children with you but the walk from the Ramblas... More

An enjoyable experience although a bit expensive considering how long you'll be in the Aquarium. The moving walkway through the underwater tunnel was outstanding.

We love to visit AQuariums while we are travelling. And today in Barselona was quite Rainy Weather so this visit was amazing with long walk and huge main aquarium with sharks and other impressive fishes. Worth to visit and see this!

I am not an expert on aquariums but this was pretty disappointing. I went because my friend wanted to go (I don't like sea animals in particular) and I had zero expectations. Really there were nothing special to see, just a few of interesting (and colorful) fish and some small sharks. Otherwise nothing interesting.

First thing it's over priced for what it is but it is bigger than any aquarium we've been to in the U.K. Was disappointed about the sharks as we were told they had the biggest ones but they were small like the ones at home. Good point is it's all wheelchair accessible. Won't rush back
