Got here just before opening queues were not very long so didn't wait long. Welcome photo taken which was nice on entry if you choose to buy. Really enjoyed the whole experience of the aquarium was nice to watch the penguins being fed. Cafe was nice not that expensive either which was nice. Gift shop was very reasonable prices was very pleased with the whole experience.
This is a must visit place in Barcelona. I was initially reluctant due to the entry fee, but I felt it is worth a visit. You will have a feeling of standing in the ocean starring at those awesome and beautiful creatures :) Its is a great fun place for kids. Just loved the color, variety and beauty of the sea life. The collection is huge and is amazing to see.
It’s a nice aquarium, but if you had visited other similar places, this one won’t be anything so special or interesting for you. Still it is a good idea to visit it is if you are with your kids. For them it will be interesting for sure. I don’t recommend it that much for adults. For its price of 20€ you can visit a lot more interesting places in Barcelona.
Love this place! Very big, a lot to see. Recommend especially for families. There are some cool things for children to play. And there is some kind of Cafe inside. There is a huge pool which you walk through in a glass tube at the bottom. This place is one of my biggest impressions from Barcelona.
Nice place to go with kids. Although, I felt it was a bit overpriced for was it actually was there is not a great deal to do the kids got bored easily and you certainly do not need more than an hour to go around the whole thing it’s fairly small so it can get very crowded so people are just bumping into each other, needs to be bigger and they need to provide better walk ways, the queue to get in wasn’t so bad overall it is okay if your in the area and need to pass some time.
