2017 We stumbled across this aquarium not having read the reviews here. The plight of the large Moray eel in a tank so small was very upsetting, reading the reviews on here on our return and finding out that the poor creature has been incarcerated...More

Was not the most impressive collection, so it felt a bit pricy for what the attraction had to offer. At least it was a escape from the sunny streets.

Please do not visit if you love animals. This was not a place I would bring my children either. Outdated and dirty cabinets, and it was pretty obvious that some of the animals were suffering. It is a bit strange that the authorities haven't closed...More

We visited as both my mother and I love aquariums unfortunately not this one. It is small, very dark and some of the fish don't appear to have enough space, especially that big strange green thing!!!

The aquarium is nothing special, but to be honest, never saw fish beeing so interactive. We spent half an hour watching the murenas hunting each other :) The sea stars, shark, piranas - all very curious and made fun to the kids

Absolutely horrific conditions for the animals. Had tears in my eyes looking at large fish stuffed into tiny tanks. Should be closed asap.

Price € 8 for adults, for children from 2 years 5 €. The worst aquarium I've seen. Absolutely did not match the price. Too few fish.

My girlfriend and I stumbled in here by accident on our Easter trip to Alghero. As it was raining we decided to pay the 8 euro each fee and have a look around. There were a number of filthy tanks with fish being kept in...More
