Great family day out. It is expensive but the dolphin show was worth it. Not too busy and it was very tidy.

If you like fishes, sharks and dolphins is you place to go! Otherwise there is not much to see, i mean is a very nice place but not to waste time if you have just a weekend like us in Valencia..!! But even though is interesting.

I've never really been one for fish, finding what goes on below the sea line a bit boring... NOT ANYMORE! It's fascinating. It's done so well here. When we paid the 30 euros to get in each I thought it was a little extortionate but having now seen how well they look after amazing creatures, it's well worth the money.... More

To be honest, I expected much more from the Oceanografic. Too much people, too little to see. But I loved the seals and penguins, they were really cute. While I am not really fan of the dolphin shows, this one was more focused on educating everyone on the dolphins, the care for them and what to do if someone finds... More

This is an amazing aquarium with an incredible range of fish as well as penguins, dolphins and sea lions. You could easily spent 2 or 3 hours here with so much to see.

It was our second visit to Valencia so we decided to bring kids this time (age 7 and 3). The kids loved it so we went twice and made use of our Valencia tourist cards! My feelings are mixed. First of all, I do not support establishments where animals need to perform tricks for food so I did not go... More

The Oceanografic is worth taking a couple of hours to stroll through, however, it's not a "5 Star attraction".

Great place to visit in Valencia. Aquarium with so many exhibits both underwater and above ground. Beluga whale my favourite.

We visited this as a family with children ages 12, 8 and 4. This aquarium is a bit different than others in that it is a large campus and you walk to the separate buildings. We all enjoyed it especially since we went during low season so it was easy to see all the exhibits. The kids favorite part was... More

We had high expectations as this attraction has only been open for 14 years and we really felt would show off the mammals, birds and fish to their best advantage - however we were extremely disappointed and saddened by the size of many of the display tanks. The beluga whales had very little room to move around adequately for their... More
