Bergen Aquarium

Bergen Aquarium is Norway’s largest aquarium and one of Bergen’s biggest tourist attractions. We create great experiences and memories for life for both young and old.

Bergen Aquarium has been arranging fantastic encounters with animals from the deep ocean and dry land since 1960, and boy do we have some news for you! In a brand new habitat, the sea otters Gizmo and Bella drive our zookeepers crazy with their mischief, Norwegian big fish roam our new grand ocean aquarium, and you are welcome to try out our new roof playground (or take a deserved coffee break while your children play). In 2019 we will also be launching a big amphibia exhibition.

Desire to learn
The biggest Aquarium in Norway is home to some of the strangest creatures that usually inhabit the shoreline, great ocean depths and the Arctic, or tropical rainforests. We also have a goal to teach people about animals and animal welfare, conservation and biodiversity.

Events every hour
Given that the aquarium is home to more than 400 wild animals (and keepers), there is almost always something going on both inside and outside for children and adults. There are extra events every hour, such as sea lion training, penguin feeding, guided tours of the exhibitions or other activities that let you get to know the animals even better. All presentations and exhibitions will be presented both in Norwegian and English.
