Good place to visit with kids. It is located on the waterfront next to the yachts in a nicely modern area. The aquarium itself has a good supply of fish and Nemo and Dory can be seen in the same tank :) There are some sand sharks and various other fish, rays and marine life that make it an interesting...

Wonderful experience. Thought it was a bit pricey but lot inside. Its Barcelona and nothing is cheap like London here. Kids were loving it and lovely stroll to get there by the harbour. Worth seeing for sure

€18 for a place that you spend less than an hour in is extortionate but it was a rainy day and we were hoping for something similar to the aquarium in Valencia. The queueing system was ridiculous and you have to wait for people to have their photo taken on their way in even if you don't want your photo... More

The title says it all - do NOT miss this place. It is so cool, including walking through a glass tunnel surround by sharks and other fish. Very well done and worth repeat visits.

If you like aquariums this is the place to go. It doesn't matter what the weather or who you go with you can't help but find something that will appeal to you here! Plus it's in a great location so go for a walk around the port and enjoy the views!

Twenty euros per person over ten years old. We did it in 20 minutes. Not good value save your aquarium visit for another city.

Me and my partner visited the aquarium just after midday. It wasn't busy, no queuing or waiting. The actual aquarium was really good with thousands and thousands of fish and other aquatic species. This would be a really nice place for a family to go with children as it is very exciting. Fish are all in tanks which you can... More

We thought twice when we saw the price of the entrance tickets but had discount vouchers plus discount for age, so thought we would go in.. We were there for ages -- unable to see how other people managed it in 1 hour. We really enjoyed our visit - especially to see sharks swimming so close, as were all the... More

Conventional aquarium with a succession of dispay basins, some of which seem a bit overpopulated, with explanations about the submarine inhabitants in various languages, and the obligatory shark tunnel which somehow fails to impress (not just in Barcelona, though), but that, obviously, is a question of personal taste. They follow the annoying trend of forcing you through the gift shop... More
