  • My children enjoyed the day here ,after visit the Aquariam ,we did have a nice meal in the restaurantt. Then children enjoyed the play area outside , We all enjoyed an will visit again 
  • We visited by chance after being given a leaflet in Bugibba, only 10 minute walk down the road from there. Lovely place to spend a couple hours, they had a great kids play area, though it was busy as ...  more »
  • A very modern and well maintained, but slightly small Aquarium. The entry of 12.5€ is too high compared to the offer. An hour is enough to look at everything. The location of the Aquarium is very beautiful, it is worth to enjoy an aperitif on the terrace in good weather

  • 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.
