Great experiences below the surface
- Safe, secure and fun!

As always, there will be room for great experiences at The North Sea Oceanarium. We have adapted our exhibition and activities, so they live up to the recommendations from the Danish Health Ministry. This also means that some things will be a little bit different that normal, but it definitely does not mean that you will get fewer experiences when you join us on an adventure below the ocean’s surface. 

Amongst other things you can experience:

  • The touch pool where you can pet a starfish or maybe even a crab – if you dare!
  • The Oceanarium containing 4,6 million liters of ocean water and the home of both the wonderous sunfish, thousands of schooling fish, ferocious sharks and much more..
  • Big Ocean Window – The largest interactive screen in Scandinavia on which you can get up close with the giants of the ocean
  • The Whale Researchers Hut in which you can get closer to the whale researcher’s work and experience the skeletons of the Whales of the North Sea
  • The Movie Theatre where you can watch different exiting movies for both children and adults
  • The Hunters of the North Sea – an all new exhibition containing 3 new unique aquariums with jellyfish, schooling fish and predatory fish
  • The playground that has many cool options for lots of fun
  • Our Backstage area every day from 10.00-12.00 AM (max. 40 people)
  • The seals in the large outdoor Sealarium which are fed every day at 11.00 AM and 3.00 PM*
  • The Café with delicious food and plenty of room to enjoy it
  • Feeding in the Oceanarium every day at 1.00 PM*
  • Ocean View is open (only on weekends) 1.20-2.00 PM (max. 12 people)
  • The Crab Coast (only on weekends) 11.00 AM-12.00 PM and 3.00-4.00 PM (max. 20 people)

You will also be able to experience different activities in the exhibition during the day and especially selected activities will be announced on the speakers during the day appr. 10 minutes before start.

We have plenty of room to enjoy with 10.000 m2 indoors and 6.000 m2 outdoors. The entire exhibition can be explored completely safely. 

*Completion of activities depends on us being able to comply with the safety regarding Covid-19.


No sunfish in the Oceanarium

We don’t have a sunfish in the Oceanarium at the moment. Our latest sunfish had bad kidneys and died in January.

Through the years we have successfully had sunfish in the Oceanarium most of the time, but we have had times without sunfish before, when we haven’t been able to get any new specimens.

The explanation is that we either get the sunfish from Danish waters – mostly during autumn – or alternatively get them small from Southern Europe.

As soon as our vendor from Southern Europe can deliver new sunfish, we will get them flown in to their new home. When that will be exactly, depends on the possibilities of finding them in the open seas of Southern Europe.
