    I had read both the excellent and the dismal reviews before making my way here, and I'm glad I decided to judge the place for myself. I thought the place was excellent for a mini aquarium. I don't kno...  more »

    Price is affordable and to my surprise, the oceanarium is quite big. When I went, they have quizzes and free gifts. Not a bad experience as you get to see many sea creatures and some reptiles here.

    Variety of fish and other creatures, worth the money. Complete the quiz and you get extra souvenir. Kids and adults alike will love this place.Two recommendations for the Management: 1) Need to have a bathroom inside the Ocenarium itself 2) The 3D movie is rather boring, should change a new one.

    Lots of aquatic varieties but not an exceedingly big place. Kids will love it though. Answer the quizzes correctly and win a prize!

    Good place to spend time with your family especially​ for an educational trip. Much smaller compared to Aquaria KLCC. Located in the shopping mall- The Shore. Yet there are numbers of animal species can be seen here, mostly fish. At the end of the tour your can feed the turtles too.Recommend to come here during week days since the space quite small perhaps it will be crowded on weekends. Worth visit n worth for your money.

    Good places to bring your family. Variety of rare fish, snake, and there are also a turtle. The price is ok and they also give a gift for those who complete their quiz.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
