What people are saying about Valencia
It is always fantastic to visit the Oceanographic. Alway worth to get repeated!!! The only thing I did not like at all regarding the online booking process was the following: I ordered through Get-your-guide my entrance tickets. I got the PDF-documents for the print-out (I was advised to do so!). We went 2 adults, 2 kids and 1 baby. Waiting in line to go through the entrance at already 30 degrees in the morning, finally it was our turn and then!!! we got advised that this was no entrance ticket - that we would have to go to the cash point! So we had to stand again in line in order to get our "valid tickets" and after that the second time in line to go through the entrance. In my opinion that online booking process does not make any sense at all as at the end it cost us much more time and inconveniences. That is definitely something I was not happy with at all - but other than that the experience and the great time spent in the Oceanographic is always worth to get repeated.
The Oceanografic is definitely worth a visit. I can fully recommend going there. The Hemisferic is worthy as well when combined with the Oceanografic, but you should not select a 3D movie as that one is just screened on a small part of the Imax, making it appear just like any regular cinema. Therefore better choose one of the 2D documentaries than the 3D cartoons, even if you are with kids or your girlfriend loves cartoons. ;)
The biggest problem of the day was that the code for the voucher couldn't be found so it took 20 minutes for the science park employee to give us our tickets. Other than that the day was well worth the cost of the ticket. You also need to decide what show you are going to see at the hemisferica before you arrive as you only have to specify the subject and time of the show you want to see when you collect your tickets.
Done as much as could be done in one day - including late afternoon dolphin show courtesy of getting a pass-out of Oceanagraphic to visit the Arts and Science Museum after lunch then return. Finished with movie at Hemispheric - you book time and title at the begining when collecting tickets. Recommend a 10 -11 am start and prepare for a long day (7pm-ish) to make it worthwhile.
We spent 6 hours looking around and even late teens enjoyed it all. Dolphin show worthwhile and makes attempt to educate about the perils our seas facing in a fun way. 4D hurricane experience worth the extra. Plan your time around the shows.
