Its good for a 10mins walk, 5eur/pers. I would say the exibitions are interesting, the problem is that i saw few empty spots inside and out also. Needs some remodeling.

We rather enjoyed this aquarium - yes it's pretty small but then at 5 euros for adults (free for kids) I wouldn't expect something massive. It's in a charming building on the edge of Sempione Park and has an area outside with some ponds too....More

Hi, This aquarium is located in the Sempione Park. The entry to this aquarium is covered in the Tourist Museum card. So we did not have to pay anything for entry. It is well worth a visit if you are visiting the Sempione Park.

Quite good and interesting aquarium, located in the Parco Sempione. We stumbled in when it was free entry, but the ticket is quite cheap anyway. It's not very big, but is very well organized. Worth seeing.

Free for kids and only €5 for adults this was good value for money. It's a nice room with approx 20 tanks varying in size, nicely presented in modern looking tanks. Good value for money as something interesting to do in nice cool, air-conditioned surroundingso.
