Tickets & Prices
The Barcelona Aquarium has three types of tickets: Adults, Children, and young children, which go from most to least expensive respectively.
What to see and do
The Barcelona Aquarium is one of the top things to do with kids in Barcelona (not to say you can’t go without them!). There is much to see, but these are some of the highlights:
An eighty metre underwater tunnel through the aquarium’s main tank. Walking from one end to the other, you will feel as though you are immersed in the ocean, looking up at sharks and dozens of species of fish.
The Underwater Ecosystems
Each ecosystem is designed specially to accommodate the species that call it home. From anemones to coral reefs to algae, there are fourteen in total, striving to give visitors real insight into what goes on beneath the waves.
The Tropical Aquariums
The tropical aquariums are often the favorite of children, where they can see schools of multi-colored fish swim and mingle with the bright coral reefs. There are seven total tropical aquariums, including one dedicated just to the sharks that inhabit tropical climates.
The Penguin Habitat
Not all the Aquarium’s tanks are home to fish, there’s also a Humboldt Penguin habitat, where you can watch them waddle along on land in typical clumsy penguin fashion — and dart through the water with grace and speed.
L’Aquarium’s Shark Experience lets you get up close and personal with the sharks. If you have a diving license you can swim in the shark tank with the caretakers, and for those that don’t you can still go under water inside a shark cage. A memorable experience you’ll carry with you for life.
