    • The San Sebastián Aquarium is one of the most popular attractions in the Basque Country, with 300,000 visits a year. It is an obligatory stop for all visitors to the city. The Aquarium stands in one of San Sebastián’s most picturesque spots, the harbour, right next to the Old Town, with its enormous gastronomic selection, and only a few minutes from the city centre.

      The San Sebastián Aquarium occupies an emblematic building dating from 1928, with two floors dedicated to the maritime and marine heritage of Gipuzkoa. Particularly interesting is the skeleton of a northern right whale in addition to numerous tanks dedicated to the Bay of Biscay, in which you can view more than 200 species, not forgetting the famous 360º tunnel and a variety of tropical species.

    Great mix of museum and aquarium tanks. First you will learn about the first time humans sailed around the earth, followed by local fishing and boat racing tradition. Then they switch to natural history ans slowly move towards the fish in the aquarium. Especially the 1.8 million liter tank with local fish is amazing. Can recommend a visit.

    Great fun especially with kids. First floor is a maritime ⚓ museum. Later on you'll have the aquarium. Please be aware the tunnel is only 2m high in the center.

    Small and cozy aquarium, we went around in about one hour, kids ages 11 and 6 enjoyed it plenty. Didn't see a turtle that we wanted to see but loved it anyway. Got 2 turtle souvenirs in their shop.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by ASeenath (County Durham, United Kingdom) on 08/09/2022

    We had good fun here at the aquarium. The exhibits are quite nice and the range of marine life we saw here was fascinating. Will certainly return if ever in the city.

    Excellent value and entertainment! For our tastes the museum element at the start of the tour was less interesting and more opportunity to avoid this might have been helpful. However the aquarium...
