The aquarium is located in the 19th-century Austrian fort Verudela. A building with a pentagon base, with 11 living quarters, food and weapons warehouses, and drinking water supplies was served by about 120 soldiers. Located at 31 m above sea level, the fort was part of the Pula fortification network, which consisted of over 50 buildings of various sizes.
