Skansen Aquarium

The world's most unique aquarium

Skansen Aquarium is the world’s most unique aquarium, 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 start 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 an arc 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 entrance to Skansen is not included. If you have a Skansen annual pass you only pay half the entrance fee.
