I love aquariums and was very much looking forward to visiting The Blue Planet. As many of the TA reviews mentioned how busy it gets, I decided to go early morning during a weekday. There were no queues outside, and the queue inside was quite small so I was hopeful my strategy had worked. Wrong!! Inside it was absolutely heaving, so much so, that you couldn't get close to any of the fish tanks. There's something about the flow of the rooms which doesn't quite work and means that bottlenecks are created. It's also quite expensive, but then everything in Copenhagen seemed expensive to me!
As there were so many people (and pushchairs!) inside, it was incredibly hot so I went looking for the cloakrooms. Unfortunately, there are no supervised cloakrooms, but rather a number of unsupervised rails dotted about. These were completely full so I had to keep my coat with me. Lockers are also available, but these were all taken. There were queues for all the toilets, and the eating area was full to bursting.
On a positive note, from what I could see, there are an impressive range of underwater fish etc although many of the signs are in Danish with no English translation. The building itself is quite impressive and worth a visit if you like architecture.
I'd like to visit it again at some point to see it properly, but would be concerned about the crowds. They really need to start limiting numbers to make the experience more enjoyable for everyone. A supervised cloakroom would work better than a free for all, and they definitely need more toilets.
