Atlanterhavsparken is a family favorite where both children and adults can experience and learn about the unique and diverse life below the surface along the Norwegian coast. Twice is Atlanterhavsparken voted the best aquarium in the Nordics by the Swedish family site barnsemester.se . which selects the best of the best in travel and experiences for families with children.
The children's favorite place is the activity room . Here there is both an indoor jetty above the crab pool and a contact pool where you can really get up close to manger sea creatures. Here you can hold a sea sausage or touch a soft starfish, a spiky sea urchin or take a closer look at a shell. The bait is ready on the jetty, so it's just a matter of getting started with crab fishing.
Another thing that the children are really excited about Atlanterhavsparken is the new, beautiful Science Centre , which opened on 1 September last year. In 2019, the Ministry of Education appointed Atlanterhavsparken to become Norway's first Marine Science Centre, which currently has three exhibitions; Living in the sea, the Sea Nation and Ocean Research .
Papa Espen's favorites are the three lively and charming otters Nusse, Muffe and Pia . They are social, make a lot of noise, love visits and each have their own incredible life story. You can see and read more about the incredible stories of Nusse, Muffe and Pia here .
