Besides the standard entry, we also booked the tour "the other side of the aquarium". For €12 this was great value as really helped our understanding of how Oceanographic is run and got us to places you just can't see such as the Sea Turtle hospital. Great experience.

We visited in February as the weather wasn't great so we thought that we'd do an activity indoors. First, a disclaimer, my kids are 15 and 17.. so bear that in mind if you have younger kids. The tickets are not cheap, but if you are at school or going with school age kids, then bring their student card as... More

If you like aquariums then you will love Oceanografic. It has lots to see and will take a few hours. The price was 29 euros per person though, which for me is around 10 euros more than it should be, so if you are on a budget you can probably skip this place - it is good but not an... More

The all complex makes very positive impression. I've visited oceanarium and science museum. Oceanarium is just splendid- i spent there 4hours and I went out with a big smile :) Science museum is not so big as I supposed but it is very interesting even for those who are not into technical stuff. You can see some inventions and try... More

Not a lot more to say. Only question in my mind is about the Dolphin shows and captive Dolphins but I get the sense that they making the best of a bad position there and very much pushing the conservation message. If your scruples allow go and take in the show. If they don't go and miss the show.

Visited last sunday and have to say itwas a bit of a disappointment. The buildings and aquariums didn't really disapoint, but neither did they blow us away. One crocodile (small), could have been dead for all we saw, no really big sharks, no butterflies, ( i know, wrong time of the year) Dolphin show was poor, I've seen more tricks... More
