Barcelona Aquarium, Barcelona Reviews - Write a Review
This is a very small aquarium so don't expect much. I thought it was adequate for 5 to 13 year old children. There are some nice attractions like being able to "swim" with the sharks if you want to scuba dive in a cage net type area to watch the sharks up close. Great place for young children as it looks like it us geared toward that demographic.
It’s nice place for kids. They have small area for playing and feeding koi. But not so much attraction to join or learn. Sometimes they have an event. So better to check their schedule first. If you are tourist and book some tourist bus, they will give you discount ticket for this aquarium.
To be fair, I don't think it's one of the best I have seen when it comes to vareity. It's mostly focusing on few kinds and no big fishes are available. At 20 euros entrance fee, I think it's overpriced. The kids area is fine and you can spend quality time inside with your kids at the food court. The area and the mall around it is super cool. Great atmosphere especially in the weekends.
Fun place to take your children. Educational part of the museum is interesting for adults too -led map of the Earths tectonic plates, volcanos and ocean currents was fun. We enjoyed the jellyfish and the penguin feeding. Rare corrals and fish from the Great barrier reef.
I visited the place with my wife and her parents. In my opinion its a place for kids to enjoy, we did not find that exiting. And the Aquarium is quite small given the touristic advertisement it has. However I would recommend this place if you have kids, they will love it.
