The Aquarium in Bergen: Children looking at penguins

Norwegian and tropical fish

In addition to the most popular animals, such as penguins and seals, children also have the opportunity to learn about the various sea creatures found in Norway. Here you can get close to everything from majestic lobsters to murky lumpfish.

The tropical section lets you experience feeding time for the crocodiles, meet snakes and reptiles and wander through the shark tunnel.

Activities for all ages

The aquarium also offers a wide range of activities that make the trip even more exciting. Head out on a Rainforest Expedition, either alone or with other visitors. Here you follow maps and solve challenges while visiting the iguanas, sharp-toothed piranhas and flashy yellow anacondas. You'll also study butterflies, monkeys and turtles up close.

The aquarium has a daily program with times for feeding, 2D and 3D movies and other activities.
