Meet the sea lions, the creepy - but great crocodiles, fish and the fascinating snakes at Bergen Aquarium. Film screening and feeding daily. Book online.
At the Bergen Aquarium you will meet famous local personalities like Pingrid Alexandra, Vitus and Zelters. You can also experience the great atmosphere created by the young and old citizens of Bergen who keep coming back to say hello to the animals - and to meet each other. Since 1960, the aquarium has formed a vibrant part of our local identity.
In more than 50 large and small aquariums you can watch in fascination all the weird and wonderful things that go on beneath the surface at close quarters. In addition to getting to know the cod, and all the other creatures that live along the Norwegian coast, you can meet animals like crocodiles, snakes, lizards and common marmosets in our tropical section.
Exhibition "Plastbyen" (Plastic City):
Each year, 8 million tonnes of plastic waste are discharged into the oceans. It's the same as the weight of five million cars! In the Pacific we find large amounts of microscopic plastic pieces that are very harmful to animal and plant life. We cannot manage to solve this problem alone, but everyone can do their bit. The exhibition Plastbyen will focus on this massiv environmental problemt and is made up of contributions from children and adults in Bergen and the region.
