The location is great as it is front sea. The museum is rather small (4 floors) and lacks of entertainment to stimulate the discovery aspect. Many aquariums to see. My young kids were not super interested in. Probably more for teenagers.

Worth to visit, particularly with children. Once can learn about Baltic sea and observation also exotic fish and creatures.

Absolutely horrible. The poor animals have barely room to turn around in their way too small habitats. Fish were covered in what looked like fungus and their eyes were cloudy. Turtles had no land area in the habitats and clearly panicked while trying to escape through the glass. I counted about 10-15 live (barely) species in small aquariums, the rest... More

In a perfect world we would be diving in clear waters to see all the beautiful fish instead of trapping them in small tanks. But we don't live in a perfect world so we have to have aquariums. This one is pretty good if you like that kind of thing. It's not too big but there is a good variety... More

We spent there few hours in a rainy day. It was worth its price. Probably most interesting and unique part shows local wildlife of the Pucka Bay. Beside that it's just aquarium one can see in many places worldwide. Colorful fishes, some very interesting species form different continents. Some interesting information about Baltic Sea and fishing industry. I am sailor... More

It wasn't one of the better aquariums we've visited. Ok for an hour or so on a rainy day but wasn't worth travelling from Gdansk for! Exhibits were ok, nothing really big or impressive.
