Skansen Aquarium

The world's most unique aquarium

Skansen-Aquarium is the world’s most unique aquarium: a place where you can find everything from monkeys, fishes and crocodiles, to scorpions, parrots and frogs.

At Skansen-Aquarium there is always something new going on! Since the opening in 1978 the aquarium has been rebuilt and broadened with new animals and experiences. As the years have gone by, the aquarium has become more like Noah’s Ark than an actual aquarium. You can pet a snake and a spider in their pet- and hugging corner, which is open on weekends and holidays during low season and daily during peak season.

Welcome to an exciting and exotic part of Skansen!

Please note that the building is located inside the Skansen park but the entrance to Skansen is not included in the fee. A separate ticket to the Skansen is required.
