What is Oceanogràfic?

Welcome to the largest aquarium in Europe

Located in the avant-garde architectural complex of the City of Arts and Sciences in València, the aquarium is a true tribute to the seas and oceans of the planet and contains large aquariums which faithfully reproduce the most important marine ecosystems.

In this way, Oceanogràfic Valencia is configured as a first-rate scientific, educational and recreational centre.

A whole sea of sensations which can spark our imagination. Welcome to an exciting journey through the oceans.

The location of Oceanogràfic Valencia is derived from the city’s close relationship with the sea.

Beyond its recreational component, its main objective is to actively promote the conservation of the seas and their inhabitants and to disseminate the importance of this message among the population of the Community of València and the rest of the world.

To do so, it regularly carries out research and education projects related with the sea and oceans. In its pursuit of raising awareness of this environment, Oceanogràfic offers visitors a journey through different marine ecosystems.
