Istanbul Aquarium, Istanbul Reviews

  • The aquarium is massive. You have about 30 minutes to an hour to walk through it alone. Also there's penguins so it's instantly awesome. But for real though it's so beautiful and they have a ton of wild life there. Awesome.

  • A great place to spend time. There is a shopping mall and next to it is sea. You can also find a small beach which closed at around 6. Aquarium is great and a must visit place specially for families

  • Given it a 2 star, I have been to multiple aquariums this is not the 5 star. Descriptions are not enough, repetitive fish display, extra huge with no such variety of species, trying to be international like, not for kids. Themes are not attractive. Cons; The tunnel is good, and next to the mall, good for wheel chairs. Definitely not recommending it to friends and family.

  • One of the most beautiful and helpful place to see all the sea life in the oceans and showing us all the oceans one by one and how fishes live here just goes to show the dedication and the fact that they offer diving with sharks is another benefit. Its a wonderful experience seeing the penguins and all the wild life.

  • Good aquarium, it some sea species missing, mostly the same species in some areas. No turtles available there. The staff were friendly. Especially the one at the mirror maze. One issue was that when you call the help line it says that the family of three admission is for 68 TL. But when I went there the adult was for 85 TL. That was a disappointment and I think that was expensive. There was some irrelevant statues like one for Hercules that was there. I didn't see the point of having a statue for Hercules at the place. Lastly, their shop is extremely expensive. 40 TL for a Keychain. Why!!?
