We had the Copenhagen card so did not pay extra to go here. If you have the card and young kids, it's probably worth it. Otherwise, skip it.

As usual, everything in Denmark is very well designed, all the information is very clear, and very entertaining using the new technology combined with traditional approach. The only negativity is that the souvenirs can be considered very expensive..

The aquarium itself is stunning and the views over the water amazing! The aquarium itself is quite small but very well laid out. A bit out of the way but easy to get to on the city Bus!More

Hi Alice. Is there a place to store luggage at the aquarium or did you mean leave your luggage at the airport and go to the aquarium? We have 5 hours to kill before our flight & the aquarium sounds a good idea. Thanks

We left our luggage at the airport. The lockers are in car park P4. When we got to the aquarium, they had luggage lockers!
