We visited the Aquarium with our last few hours before catching a flight home from Bergen. I'd agree with other reviews, it is a little expensive given the size of the Aquarium and is starting to look dated. That said, Aquarium's aren't cheap to run...More

A great little find and perfect for a cold rainy day. It was about £25 each for the entrance fee, not cheap, but the experience was good. We saw the sealion display (although they kept us entertained for far longer just watching them swimming past...More

Even with my Bergen discount this still cost over £20 which I thought was way too expensive for what was an interesting but average aquarium. Apart from the fish, there are also reptiles and amphibians but these have no detailed descriptions or pictures with them...More

Found this to be a tired but expensive exhibition. I love visiting aquariums around the world and although I didn't expect a large, glossy experience I found it to look like it was struggling to operate.More
