It's important to temper expectations as you walk into this aquarium. Established in 1905, it is one of Europe's oldest, and while it was quite the sensation at that time, there are obviously far better aquariums now. Still, it is housed in a lovely neo-classical building of hand painted tiles and delicate friezes. It has over 100 species of marine life, most of which focus on Italian coasts and waterways. Check out the to the statue of Neptune, the Roman God of Water, in front of the aquarium. Check the aquarium website for upcoming special events and exhibits.

Acquario Civico, Milan Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very few aquariums. For what it's worth the habitats looked nice and clean. The staff understand English, and are very friendly

  • Plenty of fishes, fresh and saltwater, and it's nicely air conditioned. The informative panels are in Italian and English which is useful. It's a little odd because there are arrows pointing to "exhibitions" that aren't there and apparently there is a cafeteria and bookshop downstairs but it seemed abandoned when we went down there. It's a nice way to spend €5 and 15 minutes though.

  • Vary nice place to spend time either with friends or your family! The tropical section, of course is the best!

  • Bel posto per passare la giornata con la famiglia, i bambini si divertono tanto, anche se il giro lo si fa in 20 minuti. L'ingresso possiede: delle rastrelliere ( non ad hoc, ma ci possono stare) per 7 biciclette X 2 rack, ovvero 14 biciclette, 2 rampe accesso disabili ( entrata e uscita) , all'interno ce un unico bagno per tutti, la terrazza non ha nulla, solo la vista al parco Sempione e al giardinetto dietro l'acquario, il giardinetto possiede una rampa per disabili ma dopo che un gradino, che con una carrozzina elettrico è impraticabile. Lo staff è molto cordiale, gentile e professionale. I disabili con accompagnatore non pagano.

  • Great little place to get away from the busy city and relax. Kids are free and entrance is only 5 euro. My daughter loved looking at all the beautiful fish. Enjoy a walk through the park as well.
