Acquarium Galicia is a private company of Galician capital that was born in 1996 with the desire to plan, build and manage the first Galician aquarium. For this, he chose the town of O Grove, a place full of stories written by the tide, where man and sea blend beyond the tangible.
Thus, on May 17, 1997, Acquarium Galicia opened its doors and became the first aquatic installation of the Gallga community, focused on the dissemination of our seas and the conservation of maritime heritage.
Our aquarium is located in a small tongue of land completely surrounded by sea, on the northwest coast of the O Grove peninsula, where life is strongly linked to the sea. Every year more than 100,000 visitors visit the aquarium, of which 15,000 are schoolchildren immersed in educational programs and activities.
In 1999 the aquarium expands its facilities with the construction of a new reception area and attention to visitors, as well as a new Active Space where Golfiños no Azul opens, temporary exhibition on the presence of cetaceans throughout the coast Galician.
After 5 years of operation, the aquarium begins in October 2002 a process of renovation and thematization of its facilities and services, through a comprehensive three-year R&D plan. With it, the aquarium became an environmental equipment that facilitates each visitor's understanding and interpretation of the environmental and cultural heritage of marine Galicia.
All the species that the aquarium houses in its pools would be unnamable, a good sample of everything that exists on the Galician coast and that will allow you, along with your whole family, to take a tour of all our marine fauna, knowing it and Understanding the importance of its conservation.
