If you like the sea and stuff then this is the place for you. Displays of all the sea creatures from the area, loads of information about the oceans and the effects of pollution ( I am not sure if all the information about exhibits is in English though). You can see tanks that have fish from all around the... More

Nice place.. but felt little expensive.. it would be better if they keep the entry fee minimal.. so that visitors in large number can get entry. otherwise place looks OK...

You get a comprehensive impression of the relations and interactions of the different oceans. You can see a lot of local and regional fishes of the baltic sea. There is a big focus on the worldwide polution of the oceans and the overfishing. Informations are in german and english. Helpful staff give further informations. Nice to have a couple of... More

It is probably the only thing to do in a rainy day. Besides that, nothing special or remarcable. Perhaps if you go with children, it could be a little interesting for them. But well, too much advertisement for so little to see. Oh, remarkable, yes! The rudeness of the employees: they are not interested in providing you with information on... More

This is a great place to learn about the natural history of the Baltic area. Great displays of the creatures that live in and around this area. Wonderful place to bring kids. Note there is lots of walking and lots of stairs at Oceaneum so wear comfortable shoes! Most of the information on the displays has been translated into English... More

A very nicely detailed history and current status of the Baltic Ocean environment. There appeared to be detailed explanations of each exhibit in German for its visitors and some explanation in English. A superior approach to the exhibits may have added some more English explanation as well as Italian and French.

They have some fine skeletons from whales, and some okay aquariums. But to much of the place is about reading, this is not very fun for kids. They are very focused on the local environment, so they only have local species on display. The place is okay, but not a "must do"

A lot to see, and really interesting. Calculate at least two hours if the subject interest you. The place is full of oceanic history, have several small and larger aquariums, and are well organized. Tips. Buy tickets at the touristinformation Office at the old Square. Saves you time upon arrival - skip the que. But the best tip is to... More

Great day out in this museum/Aquarium . A bit pricey, but worth it. I suggest to buy the combi ticket including the Meeresmuseum.

This place was awesome, especially for our 6 year old who is a budding scientist. Our 4 year old also greatly enjoyed this aquarium. I also really appreciated how they showed how trash affects sea life.
