“Do not miss the seals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

The aquarium itself was OK, not big, but very well maintained and with interesting species (if can get to Hamburg, there is a world class aquarium there).

The highlight, however, is the feeding of seals. You can actually see the feeding from the street, no need to buy tickets to do so. The seals are very cute and must do tricks to win the fish - a must see!!!

“Pass on the inside, check out the seals outside”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

As other people have mentioned, the inside of the aquarium is very small . . . and probably not worth your time or money. But the seals outside (free) are definitely worth a look if you're walking along the water!

“Not much to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

I think we spent about 15 minutes here. Not very much to see. a couple of fish and that is it. Brought Our 8 year old son,and he thought it was average just like us adults. It also looked like the aquariums were not very clean and it smelled a little bit in there, like the place had not been sleaned in a while. So just average

“Small but relatively cheap - seals ouside are free to watch.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

Best thing was watching the seals swimming around the outside pool - which you can do by just walking to the aquarium - so that's free! Going inside was cheap but the aquarium is small and doesn't take long to go round. A bit disappointing

“very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2013

I loved where it is located more than the place itself actually, it was located near the sea, and facing a submarine factory, a lot of restaurants nearby and like a lovely place to take a walk near their :P so it was more about what was around it :P though the place was fine :) fishes, sea lion, and yeah that was all
