History and particularities of the Aquarium
Opened in 1992, each year it adds new species and new environments, for a journey that today, with over 2 hours of visit, lets you enjoy a variety of tanks with real ambience reconstructions for dolphins, seals, penguins, fish and reptiles.
One of the peculiarities of the Aquarium of Genoa are the four big tanks for the seals, the reef, the sharks and the dolphins, which are visible from both exhibition floors. In some of the tanks you can even dip your hands and touch the fish directly, in particular the thornback stingrays.
Inside of the building, international, Italian and local companies can organize big events such as meetings, conventions, fashion shows, product launches, gala dinners and more. Choose an unusual location for your event! Pick the Aquarium.
