  • Rather small and not very informative. A little fun is it if you haven't been to something like Aquarium before. There's not much to do on a rainy day in Malta then this might be an option.

  • Its basic fauna are fish of the Mediterranean, some of other seas and oceans but the key is local. Good facilities, friendly makes a visit appropriate for families with children.

  • Very nice decoration all around and also the pool are lovingly provided. Especially the glass tunnel is of course very interesting. Admission is 12.50 for adults.

  • Restaurant is very good, staff is friendly and food is well prepared. The Aquarium itself is quite decent, maybe worth a visit. but the area is great, especially in summer. there is always a fresh breeze there.
  • Visited last year and was quite surprised how good It was. Lots to see and very interesting. September 2016 Update: Visited again.... Tasteful decor which fits in perfectly with the surrounding fish and tanks. Really well designed, informative touch screens for help in finding out about the fish, helpful staff. Well worth visiting.
  • Amazing place. Been many times since it opened and it has matured and developed into a world class conservation teaching center and all round enjoyable aquarium. Staff and especially management can't do enough for you. Superb and definitely worth a visit
  • Great! Nice talks from the staff and very nice set of intresting facts on the tablets. Foreign kids will find it difficult to reas everything and will rush to souvenir shop (which is also quite good)
  • It's a nice modern building, is well staffed. Very touristy, but also relatively small and short visit overall. Not any big amazey fish on display but nice artistic setup.
