  • The first time visited the aquarium, in general the exhibition was very pleasant. But there are a couple of drawbacks: - the mermaid show is too long, in fact the actors repeat the same actions for 30 minutes. Claims to the actors and the production do not have just gets bored to watch; - I agree with other comments that the price for the exhibition is overpriced. On the other hand, we do not know all the costs of maintaining flora and fauna, perhaps the price is adequate.

  • Attended the aquarium on September 17, 2019. We drove a taxi from Bestazhev Park, we got with traffic jams for 45 minutes. The cost of the trip - 300 rubles. It is impossible to get close to the aquarium. After disembarking from the taxi went on foot in the rain for another ten to fifteen minutes. On the way back all the same, only in reverse order. We stood in line for about twenty minutes. It's good that the queue moves there pretty quickly. Visiting the aquarium took forty-five minutes, with fifteen minutes watching the mermaid show. There was some shock that it all ended so quickly. Of course everything is very cool and beautiful. But the aquarium is really not very big. In 2006 we visited the aquarium in Barcelona with my son. Impressions were then kind of more. But in youth, as they say, the grass is greener.

  • Nice little place. My kids 7,4&2 enjoyed feeding the goldfish. My only complaint is I had to hold them up so they could reach
  • Very nice place. You can feed crazy fish for 50 rubles. Not a big place. But it’s clean and interesting. Different types of fish. We liked turtle and sharks. Very friendly staff. Even security nice and they tell something interesting about fish.
