Surprisingly unfriendly and unhelpful staff at the ticket office. Misleading signs of prices and ended up having to show our Passports! Overall a disappointing and short trip.

The Aquarium itself is rather small, consisting of one big room with several smaller and larger fish tanks which represent the marine life in the baltic sea as well as in the tropics. Don't expect something as entertaining as Sea Life but I think this...More

Took our 2 year old here. He loved it. It's small so we can just sit down and let him run around and watch all the fish. Good for kids. But boring for adults.

Even though this was very cheap to get in for admission price (3Euros), basically you go in take a small circle about 3min you can basically see everything. If you are super bored and have kid(s) with you, maybe worth visiting.

Small, two rooms only. Very well kept collection and some interesting specimens. This seems to be a side-activity of a research centre and has not invested in entertainment (a good thing overall). Children can watch the seals from outside without paying a fee.

This is a very small but nice aquarium certainly worth visiting, considering the entrance fee is just 3 €. We also got lucky to be there during seals' feeding time (10 am) which was quite entertaining.

After a walk at the Promenade or spending a day downtown this museum offers an impressive look under the surface of the water, which is present everywhere. You will not spend hours and hours in there but you will have an overview on whats going...More
