I highly recommend that you visit the BARCELONA AQUARIUM, located right next to Maremagnum shopping center, in the New Port... It's very big and modern, very well maintained and you will see some wonderful and rare species displayed there --- even PENGUINS! The entrance is a little expensive (I got a discount and still paid 9.90 EUR) but it's worth it, especially if you're going with children: they'll love it.

The visit isn't that long, but try to go there very early or by early afternoon (2-4 PM, when people usually have lunch in Spain) to avoid crowds, or you WILL spend a long time there -- making a line to try to get in! They also have a cute souvenir shop.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
