“Uninspired”

Aquarium de Valencia

Reviewed 5 May 2015

We went on Tuesday morning which coincided with several bus loads of hundreds of school kids. Which didn't help our experience. As others have noted, signage is poor. We headed off to see the Sharks first. Despite signs tellingpeople not to sit down in the tunnels or bang on the glass, the school kids did both. There were no staff around to monitor behaviour or to direct questions to. We went to see the dolphin show which was dull, all aimed at the school kids & all speaking was in Spanish. We didn't enjoy the experience & wouldn't recommend. We enjoyed seeing all the architecture in the area, however, although it was sad to see how run down the buildings & landscaping are.

This has got to be the best aquarium ever. You need to spend a whole day there to see everything. The dolphin show is the highlight but there's birds, penguins, fish and sharks galore. A really great day out.

I am from Canada and I have seen a lot of aquariums. This aquarium is kind of like all the rest. There are some neat parts to some of the areas though, like walkways are build through the aquariums so the fish can swim around and over top of you. The Arctic exhibit is very sad because the animals are so bored in the cages that they literally just swim the same pattern in the water over and over again. The dolphin show was just average and it was so cold that we didn't even stay for the entire thing. If you have never been to an aquarium I would suggest going but beware, the price per person is 27€ which is ridiculous!!

Take the time to make this a stop on your Valencia visit. There are so many exhibits of interest - beautiful displays both indoor and out. The tiniest fish to the largest- all easy to view. There are different sections for each species so if time is limited , pick what you are most interested in. We loved the outdoor aviary enclosure .
