  • This Aquarium is well worth a visit. Lots of different Tanks, well laid out, spotlessly clean, and very informative notes alongside the tanks. Gift Shop and Coffee Shop on site. Recommended.  more »
  • Aquarium quite modern, not the biggest, but it is quite interesting, such children always like. You can get to the feeding fish shous.

  • If the underwater world and its inhabitants-your highly recommend a visit! Several rooms with a transparent tunnel, the stunning beauty of fish! Maybe there is somewhere and more aquariums, but for tiny Malta, very worthy object. Entry 14 euros.

  • Paid a little bit extra for a private tour during feeding time... best.choice.Ever! The woman who took the tour was vibrant and had us all loving her job even more. She made it exciting and always had information to share with us. I've been to many aquariums over the years, but this was the first time I've had a fun experience.
  • It's a small aquarium but with nice variations of fishes. The best part of it was the "behind the scenes" tour. We got an explanation about how they keep the aquarium maintained, the efforts to not let the sharks being extinct and more important things. Very nice.
  • First time at the aquarium and i was really impressed. The girl who presented us the fish tank explained very nice the species and how is their life. The fishes here are amazingly beautiful!
  • We expected more from a national aquarium. Quite few animal species, very poor info about each tank (just the tablets, some not working), we "participated" to one of the events (reptile feeding or evolution, still not sure) but it consisted of a guy with some handwritten notes, clearly far from being an expert of the subject. It took us less than 45 minutes to see it all even stopping and reading the tank descriptions. Mainly fish species, very few crustaceans, just two small tanks of jellyfish (no starfishes or anemones at all). No interactive activities for kids. There's so much more they could do to improve. I've seen much better. It could just be a nice walk if free.
  • It's themed based on Malta's landmarks located beautifully along the coast and harbor.Some very good aquariums - the over head tunnel one with sharks was very attractive. Easily reachable by bus. Have a reptiles section as well which is ok.
