Alesund Aquarium - Review
This marine park is the most popular attraction in town. It is one of the largest saltwater aquariums in Northern Europe. With 4000 sq metres of exhibition space, it is able to house 11 large aquariums, 2 open touch pools and 2 activity pools, and a few minor aquariums. Between them, they cover practically all of Norway’s important marine life.
The Great Atlantic Tank: Cod, halibut, conger and salmon.
Selbukta: The world’s largest seal exhibit, outdoors.
It’s a 40 minute walk from the town center. Very manageable, especially considering the charming scenery of woods, monuments, the sea and the hiking paths. It’s a nice walk. Nearby, there’s also a beach where you can go swimming or scuba diving.

Alesund Aquarium, Alesund Reviews
One of a must visit when you are in Ålesund. This place attracts both adults and kids! They have both indoor and outdoor place where you can simply spend almost one day especially if you have kids. They will like this place like our children. Good shows and performance from fish show, penguin show, and other animals as well. The cafe also offer delicious simple sea food, try their fish cake! Bring extra clothes for your kids as they may need one especially if they play outside. Good space for parking. Good shop for souvenir.
A beautiful and informative aquarium where children are able to handle sealife and there is a boardwalk area set up to allow people to crab fish (all inside). Talks were informative. Outdoor area for seals, penguins and otters (all of which have feeding time shows). Has a cool water play area set amongst a maze of 'rocks' you can hop between, placing dams in different areas to experiment with how the water flows. Buckets and spades also available to play with. You can also view the seals under the water .... And they are so friendly and interested in who is looking at them too. Has a cafe and is very clean. Could easily spend a few hours here.
We spent a couple of hours here & thought it a wonderful place. Very natural & right on the seashore. Animals there, apart from the many types of fish & undersea life, are penguins, seals & otters. The weather (superb) helped us have a wondeful visit but the whole place is beautiful with lovely animals (especially the very playful otters) in large, natural enclosures in a beautiful setting with wonderful views. My wife & I wish we could have spent much longer there - lots to do for toddlers/youngsters too - highly recommended 😊
This is a great place to experience the sea life that lives off the Atlantic coast of Norway. Many species of fish and crustacean can be viewed up close, as well as penguins, seals, and otters. Great fun for kids and adults alike!
A very nice aquarium. Have some huge tanks and have a divers show. At least half a day activity for families with child's. Outside activities with seals, penguins, otters, sand pool etc. Get familiar with local nature and marine life.
