A great family option, with interactive exhibits including an underwater hall, all devoted to Galicia's coast and waters.
One of Spain's great aquariums.
One of the great aquariums and science museums of Spain, Aquarium Finisterrae is located out on the shore near the Tower of Hercules. It goes into fascinating detail through its exhibits about the coast and offshore waters of Galicia - and not just the marine life, but the lives of its fisherfolk, its fish markets, and its maritime traditions through exhibition spaces like the interactive Maremagnum. The complex contains one underwater hall called Nautilus, which recreates the adventures recounted by Jules Verne in 20,000 Leagues Beneath the Sea, and lets you get up close and personal with a variety of finned critters including grouper, turbot, and tiger sharks. A visit with one of the aquarium's sea lions is also a delightful experience. Tours are both guided and self-guided, and there are also kids' workshops and a variety of other programs.
