In 2019, Atlanterhavsparken was granted the status as Norway’s first marine science centre by the Norwegian government. Consequently, the first construction phase towards what will be ready in the autumn of 2021 has begun.
This winter, we will be doing required indoor reconstruction and will therefore be closed to the public during the first months of 2020. Major changes will happen at Atlanterhavsparken. Some parts will disappear, and new elements will see the light of day – just as we have been working on through today.
Norway’s first marine science centre will be established in Ålesund – the Norwegian Fishing Capital
A marine science centre with living fish and water, in an ultimate location placed beautifully in the middle of the food supply, will contribute to an increased knowledge for all of us. There is still so much we do not know about the sea, and knowledge will become increasingly important for the future. Norway is one of the most important seafood nations in the world and has sea areas more than six times the size of its land territories.
Atlanterhavsparken is now making a huge step forward in becoming Norway’s best marine showcase – stay tuned!

Every day at 15 o'clock all year, the Harbour Seals in the Seal Bay will be served dinner by the aquarists. Herring is the favourite dish, and the Seals are very active during the meals.
Every day at 13 o'clock the diver also enters the large tank to feed the fish by hand. During the summer season (until 31st of August), the diver will also show up at 15.30). Penguins feeding show at 2.30 all year.
