The idea to start an aquarium began in 1954. It was eventually built on the site of the former Hotel Nassau which was destroyed in World War II. In 1956, the Sea Aquarium Bergen aan Zee was officially opened. In the late 1960s the Neptune restaurant was built on thr top.

At the end of the 1980s the entrance was moved  and in the 1990s
an geographical regrouping was made. Another large restaration took place in 2016 where an external seal pool was added.

After paying the entrance fee we walk above the piranha pool to get to an area with terraria. Here you meet tarantulas and poison dart frogs among others. Passing the multi media room we first see a large tank for mediterranean fish. The stairs down to the left makes us go down to 3 large aquaria, here we find first a coral reef, then smaller species of sharks before we end at the North Sea. At the tou pool we follow to the right to meet fish from the tropical sea like the moray eels, clown fish and the lion fish. At the rear end is a large pool showing the life of the lagoon. Then we once again meet creatures of the North Sea. Going out side we the meet the harbor seals.
