  • It may seem fairly small, but the aquarium has many cool animals, including penguins and performing otters. They also have a small rock pool-type tank where children can put their hands in and touch a few harmless sea creatures.^^ And they have some insects, reptiles and sharks, for those who like more "creepy" animals.

  • Rather informative too bad most attractions are tailored for kids. There are a few things can be improved - maybe sheltered area for seals and otter place since it rains quite frequently in Bergen? - most tanks do not have the same living being as what have described on the labels. - The arrangement of the animal can be improved.

  • The penguins that they have are the fastest in the entire world. The experience is truly amazing. I almost feel connected to nature. It seems small at first but once you enter the building it gets big. It's great for both adults and kids.

  • The aquarium in Bergen is a fantastic place for both people who go in alone because of curiosity and big families who wants to entertain and teach their child/children about animals from different parts of the world. The Aquarium of Bergen is known to keep their animals healthy and happy, and this also reflects on the awesome staff who work tirelessly to make a great experience ever greater! I would give 10 stars, but google only allows 5 :P

  • The best aquarium probably in all of Europe. The sea lions presentation at 3pm, is a must! Penguins are available for viewing all the time, however their feeding time is at 5pm.
