Description

At the Bergen Aquarium you will meet famous local personalities like Pingrid Alexandra, Vitus and Zelters. You can also experience the great atmosphere created by the young and old citizens of Bergen who keep coming back to say hello to the animals - and to meet each other. Since 1960, the aquarium has formed a vibrant part of our local identity.

In more than 60 large and small aquariums you can watch in fascination all the weird and wonderful things that go on beneath the surface at close quarters. In addition to getting to know the cod, and all the other creatures that live along the Norwegian coast, you can meet animals like crocodiles, snakes, lizards and common marmosets in our tropical section.

In the cinema you can watch our spectacular 3D films as "Turtle Vision" and "Bloppo and Willy's Undersea Wondershow", as well as the Norwegian movie "The kingdom of the killer whales".
