I visited the Barcelona Aquarium with a group of friends after seeing advertisements online and around the city. The ticket queue was surprisingly short considering the rain was pouring down and this is an indoor activity. The 20€ ticket price I would say is excessive,...More

Unless you have never been to an aquarium, do not waste your money here. Long lines and then not much to see; better take the kids and yourself to Cosmo Caixa, an incredible science museum with an Amazonian forest with live birds and incredible fish...More

My friends and I did the cage diving experience and it was amazing! Our "guide" was very informative and helpful and went above and beyond what our package was supposed to include. We were able to swim with and even touch the sharks after we...More

Great for kids, but as a 20-something I enjoy aquariums too and this just didn’t do it for me. Maybe aquariums in America are different but the fish here were very boring. The best part was feeding the koi fish, for 4€ you get to...More

Don't bother visiting unless you have cash to spare. Place is small & there are not many varieties to look at. There are better aquariums in the world to visit.

If you are near Port Vell, don't miss to visit l'Aquarium of Barcelona, with his wonderful under water world, with many exotic fishes, very interesting for children but also for adults; the most famous are of course the sharks, and you admire her slow swimming.

This aquarium is nice but not great. I was a bit disappointed in the number of exhibits since I expected to see more. The penguin habitat was lackluster at best. The people mover around the giant aquarium tank was nice since it allowed you to...More

If you are into fish and educational visits this is well worth a visit. Unlike the London Aquarium you can't touch the fish. TIP :There nearest metro station to the aquarium is Dressanes
