The aquarium startet in the 1950's with small tanks on the window sill's at the museum. With money from the Sprengel family the fish and reptiles could get theire own section in 1962. 1984 this section was extended and in 1997-99 renovatet.

In the Vivariums section on the ground floor we on the left hand see 4 aquariums with fish from the Northern Sea, home to  lobster and sole. Then we look at 4 aquariums with European fresh water aquariums, home to pikes among other. Passing a large Amazone river aquarium, home to sting rays and arowanas. Turning left we then are having other fish from the Amazone river, like the electrical eal. Going to the next room we see dinosaurs and other creatures to an natural history museum. Here we find 9 terrariums home to monitors, dragons, poison dart frogs and snakes. Heading back to the aquarium part we meet the piranhas and other South American fish in 3 aquaria. The next step are 3 aquaria with African fish. Before heading for the exit of this part we then look at 4 aquaria with animals from the coral reef
