A small aquarium

Was not the most impressive collection, so it felt a bit pricy for what the attraction had to offer. At least it was a escape from the sunny streets.

Please do not visit if you love animals. This was not a place I would bring my children either. Outdated and dirty cabinets, and it was pretty obvious that some of the animals were suffering. It is a bit strange that the authorities haven't closed it down. Regret the visit, really a very horrible place.

We visited as both my mother and I love aquariums unfortunately not this one. It is small, very dark and some of the fish don't appear to have enough space, especially that big strange green thing!!!

The aquarium is nothing special, but to be honest, never saw fish beeing so interactive. We spent half an hour watching the murenas hunting each other :) The sea stars, shark, piranas - all very curious and made fun to the kids

Reminded me of crappy attractions on the seaside holidays of my youth. My excitement about the visit was immediately peaked by the first exhibit being none other than the humble goldfish. They have a large eel who looks at every visitor like he's sizing up their innards for some eel-to-eel love making and I think the bullshark is bordering suicidal.... More

We had some time to spare so we went down to the aquarium. It's not great. Pretty dark and small. They had a decent amount of animals but some of them looked a bit big for their tanks. Having said that, I'm no expert so maybe they were fine. Good value if I remember correctly

Absolutely horrific conditions for the animals. Had tears in my eyes looking at large fish stuffed into tiny tanks. Should be closed asap.

Price € 8 for adults, for children from 2 years 5 €. The worst aquarium I've seen. Absolutely did not match the price. Too few fish.

My girlfriend and I stumbled in here by accident on our Easter trip to Alghero. As it was raining we decided to pay the 8 euro each fee and have a look around. There were a number of filthy tanks with fish being kept in overcrowded conditions. There were signs explaining that the aquarium is being refurbished but precious few... More

This is definitely not The Deep in Hull or the Aquarium in London. It is very small and very poor with the fish being kept in very small tanks for their sizes. On my arrival I was the only person in the building and was shocked at the conditions the fish were being kept in, far too small. The workers... More
