Aquaria, Kuala Lumpur

TICKETS FROM
$12
Visit Aquaria, an aquarium located under the thriving city center. Opened in 2005, this state of the art attraction occupies two levels and features a 90 m (300 ft) underwater tunnel where you're surrounded on all sides by a rich diversity of aquatic life. Themed to represent a journey from land to the darkest depths of the ocean, this largely interactive and educational facility is home to 250 different species from both surf and turf, native to the country and from farther afield. See colorful creatures in themed exhibits including a coral walk, electric zone, living fossils, and oceaniarium--and keep your eye out for sharks. Discover how to plan a Kuala Lumpur trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • Interesting and fun to see all the animals, it was big and you got to see divers. You could also see when they fed fish.

  • Our 3 children age ranging 7 to 13 with about 20 over friends of theirs booked the Awuaria for one session of Sleeping with the Sharks. From the beginning, the staff had been helpful in helping us cra...  more »
  • The place is small but exhibits are ok. My daughter enjoyed the jellyfish area. The tunnel is ok albeit short. Can be noisy when school kids are there as they get too excited.  more »

  • If you're a nature (sea) lover, you will sure want to visit this attraction in the heart of KL, you can spend simply 2 to 3 hours here learning many facts about the ocean. It's a good activity to do with your family. Bonus - if you're a burger lover, you must try the FUEL SHACK located just at the eateries outside Aquaria's exit. Ask the staff if you cannot find the restaurant. And there are some downsides, 1. Many exhibits seems forced and cramped into a place. 2. They have a few different themed zones but very limited space. 3. More like a quick tour than take time to immerse and amaze yourself into wonders of oceans. For a better viewing experience, 1. Camera are allowed but flash are not. 2. You are not allowed to tap on the glass. 3. It's best to keep quiet during the visit, the fish love silence. And for the ROI, still worth it.
  • So packed on public holidays, you can only see the fishes, hardly you can read the education guide board/sign due to too many people but this is not the worse. The worse is the air-conditioning, it is so warm and stuffed. You hardly can breathe and just imagine the smell odor from the sweats? It is really really bad odor smell and hot AC. This is truly crazy, you charge expensively for the entrance, a family of six will easily cost closed to RM300 and we have to bear the unbearable odour & smell? With a lot of sweats perhaps.
  • Recommended place to visit for both local and tourists. Mykad holder get some discounts. Some animals were allocated feeding session (afternoon or evening) and suggested to view these animals during this session because the employee will brief you and show some tricks with them. The view inside and tank layouts are good. Great place to bring your kids.
  • The price is quite steep for my experience, but I would still say that it's a great place to visit when you're in KL, especially with family since they have quite a number of various shows (be sure to check out the schedule so you don't miss it). The otters show was my personal favourite. Of course, it WILL be packed on the weekends /public holiday so I suggest visiting on weekdays if possible since the walkways are quite narrow when packed
  • it is an amazing place. you need a lot of time and stamina to roam around this huge place. i loved the time here. all those species. it was worth to be there and spending a lot of time. if you are in KL its a must place to visit. i had an amazing time here. two thumbs up!!!
