Den Bla Planet is the same thing as the National Aquarium, so don't get confused by reviews for both places.
It located about a five minute easy walk from the metro station at Kastrup and is signposted from the exit. There is disable access all the way and throughout the building.
The building is located at the waters edge and is in the final throws of its completion. I think the building looks terrific.
Entrance cost is reasonable, with children under 3 free, 3 to 11 yrs are 95 dkk or £11 and adults 170 dkk or around £19. Copenhagen is generally fairly expensive, and these prices are average for the best attractions in the city.
Bearing in mind that this was only recently built, it has a great modern feel to it.
The displays are large, bright and packed with terrific looking creatures of all shapes and sizes, from swirling huge shoals of piranhas and menacing hammerhead sharks, to tiny brightly coloured fish and animals.
The tanks apparently go up to 4 million litres in size, which doesn't mean anything to me, other than very big indeed. There is a tunnel through the largest tank and you have the sharks and rays gliding just inches away from you, offering great photo opportunities.
There are a variety of tanks for warm water, cold water, salt water and fresh along with a tropical rain forest one, which contained some spectacular specimens.
The sea otter tank in particular was lovely to watch as they swam past showing off for the visitors. At the time of visiting there was also a feature on sharks and an upstairs room showed a film around the walls with english translation of the various types of shark, which you could watch lying on their bean bags.
With wide open spaces and well planned viewing areas, even when busy, you can always get a view of the tanks and so a trip with children is a treat rather than an ordeal.
There is a very nice and reasonably priced cafe, the toilets are spotlessly clean with baby changing facilities and pretty much everything is as you would expect a Danish attraction to be...very good indeed.

It's a shame I have to give 4 *'s as it looks great from the outside, we liked the layout a lot but it generally is too small. We have been to a lot of aquariums and this one by far looked the nicest, it was quiet, well kept, clean, nice selection but the size. Standard price for an aquarium, would recommend going to take a look!

This was reasonably cheap. Its quite good value. Make sure you look at the schedule to see when there is a talk about the creatures and see them be fed. Good fun and easy to reach via the metro.

Access is easy from the metro station. Walk up the street on the right after you exit the station, there is a small shop and restaurant on the left of the street. Keep walking straight ahead to busy road with traffic lights, cross the road keep walking on this road which curves to the left and you will see the aquarium on the left is a big curved steel building and that's it. Parking is available on site for a fee.

The displays were good with lots of small aquariums containing different fish and then one very large aquarium with sharks, sting rays and a variety of fish. There are 2 otters on the outside near the cafe and also 2 small pools (blue plastic tubs) outside near the cafe where you can catch crabs with fishing lines and bait supplied.

There is a touching pool in one of the corridors where you can touch fish, sea urchins etc which is good for both children and
adults.

They are currently constructing a new childrens playground that looks almost finished.

We had lunch in the cafe which was good.
