An excellent aquarium and more. All of the tanks are super clean so you get really clear views of the fish. There are lots of different zones of the word you visit and there are enough links underground and under cover that it didn't really matter that we visited on a rainy day. Dolphin show was excellent and it included... More

I went with a few of my friends, and we are all students, so we got a student discount that is not very advertised, so be sure to bring your student card and tell them otherwise you will be charged full price. Upon entering I thought it was a little pricey compared to other aquariums I have been to in... More

It was heartbreaking to see how some of the bigger fishes and mammals looked sad and trapped in there. Specially the beluga whales. It broke my heart. The swimming pools are small and badly maintained.

Reminds me so much of the theme parks within Florida, setup in exactly the same way and the aquarium has so much in it that kept the whole family entertained. .. Was a great day out. My son wasn't that interested on arrival, but left saying he had a brilliant day.

We visited most of the attractions in the City of the Arts and Sciences. I had read in a travel guide to buy the tix ahead of time and so I did from their website directly and got a discount by buying all 3. Of the attractions we visited, I felt that the Oceanographic was definitely the best. One of... More

I realize it is expensive to operate an attraction like the Oceanografic but I found it a bit pricey. There are discounts for pensioners or those 65 and older. That being said, it is an extraordinary place. I learned so much about the aquatic life around the world and the dangers they face. It is spread out over a large... More

Having only 2 hours here wasn't enough; we had to rush through the aquarium a bit even though we wanted to read more into each species. Each "habitat" was so well thought-out and beautiful, and the animals appear happy, all of them very active.

The Oceanografic of Valencia is a sight to behold. Imposing and aesthetically pleasing architecture adds to the appeal of this oceanarium. They have a huge collection of sea animals and fishes and even have a dolphin show. I highly recommend!
