I'm normally a fan of aquariums and this was an aquarium. It was good, not amazing but good. I found the anaconda scary, that's a huge snake 🐍. Also the crabs were super sneaky, moving all side ways and that. I would recommend this aquarium to anyone who is in Gdynia on a cold Friday afternoon. One of the Rays... More

It was my fourth visit at the place in the thirty years. Unfortunately there was not much change in the aquarium during this time. The same stuffed animals and fishing schematics that were here back in 1988 and the same cramped space. Some changes are for worse, like the lack of the wet zone where you could play with water...

My boyfriend and I were wondering around gdynia and came across the aquarium and decided to go in. The aquarium has some really cool fishes but there was very little of them,there was quite a bit of fake animals and very little of interactive games. It took us about 20 min to see everything. The aquarium may to good to... More

The location is great as it is front sea. The museum is rather small (4 floors) and lacks of entertainment to stimulate the discovery aspect. Many aquariums to see. My young kids were not super interested in. Probably more for teenagers.

Worth to visit, particularly with children. Once can learn about Baltic sea and observation also exotic fish and creatures.

Absolutely horrible. The poor animals have barely room to turn around in their way too small habitats. Fish were covered in what looked like fungus and their eyes were cloudy. Turtles had no land area in the habitats and clearly panicked while trying to escape through the glass. I counted about 10-15 live (barely) species in small aquariums, the rest... More

In a perfect world we would be diving in clear waters to see all the beautiful fish instead of trapping them in small tanks. But we don't live in a perfect world so we have to have aquariums. This one is pretty good if you like that kind of thing. It's not too big but there is a good variety... More

21/10/2016; I wanted to kill time before my taxi arrived at 6pm to take me back to Airport :'(, so I went to the Aquarium which was worth the 20 minute walk from the main station! The price for 1 person is very cheap. 24PLN which is just £5!.. the receptionist was friendly and spoke good english. The aquarium was... More
