Barcelona Aquarium, Barcelona Reviews

  • Great place. Well set out for kids with plenty of activities for them, a good size restaurant although we didn't try the food. A pleasant outdoor sitting area with a small park too.

  • The aquarium was quite nice. It's a bit outside the city but still easy to get to via metro. The aquarium has a tunnel through the big aquarium with sharks and mantas and many smaller aquariums with different species. Though some are quite good at hiding :D They offer a dive in the big pool in a shark safe cage so you can be close to those fascinating animals. The only thing that bugged me a bit was the rolling way through the tunnel and around it. It's quite old and squeaky and messed with my balance, but other than that it was a great experience, though a bit pricey...

  • The Barcelona Aquarium is a very nice place for kids and adults to have fun. It features lots of different species of fish, sharks, mantas, and other sea animals such as starfish, penguins and sea urchins. Don't expect to see any big animals, though, apart from a couple of sharks. There are no whales, dolphins, seals or anything of the sort. However, you still get to enjoy tons of aquariums and fishtanks housing beautiful ocean fauna and flora. Tickets are a bit overpriced, so try to use coupons when purchasing them.

  • Nice aquarium but fairly pricey. The tunnel is a very nice experience and lots of stuff for little kids. Not the biggest aquarium but seeing the Ocean Sunfish was worth it. Recommended as a break from historical stuff for families with kids.

  • This place has a lot of small aquariums with many types of sea creatures. It was also a fun experience to go below the water to see the all the fish, sharks and other creatures. There is a small garden you can go in. The trip here lasted around 2 hours. I expected more as I have seen bigger aquariums other countries before.
