  • Be careful not to get the VIP treatment, it's a waste of money. They made out to sound like the most amazing thing ever, I had a guest with me from abroad, it was not VIP, quite embarrassing. The...  more »
  • Not worth the money in our view. The “aquarium” is actually a very large floor to ceiling fish tank with a tunnel walk through. It’s about 25 metres long, and that’s it! The Underwater Zoo is more...  more »
  • We chose not to go into the Aquarium on this trip but just walking around the Dubai Mall you can see different views of the aquarium and the sea life inside!  more »

  • A beautiful scenery. The blue "skies" greets you once you step into the aquarium. You will see almost all kinds of fishes (including a baby shark) in their almost natural habitat. The under water zoo also have different species of other aquatic animals ranging from turtles to fishes to other reptiles. You will love this experience.
  • Superbly superb. A work of art and marvel. A very lovely place where you will see nature first hand. An unforgettable experience most especially for kids. The creativity, the grandeur, the magnificence etc all lovely to behold. I can spend my entire day here. I strongly recommend this place to everyone seeking to have fun and relax. Beautiful.
  • This place is absolutely incredible. There's 83 spices of fishes in the huge aquarium and much more if you buy the underwater zoo ticket. This is one in a life time experience. All the fishes, sharks, crabs etc are so beautiful. I actually didn't wanna go here at first but when I went there I was shocked too see how beautiful it is. Trust me and visit this place.
  • There is a plenty of Big sea fishes on display that you can see from outside, even without getting any tickets. So I thought there will be plenty more of big sea creatures inside. Alas, that was all there was to be seen. You get to see it from close quarters. The glasses may be not so new, so the view was not very clear from glass tunnel. There are plenty of fish varieties in the aquarium, most of which were new. Its worth a visit, would recommend it!
  • This is a must go to everyone going to the Dubai. Its marvellously created. It is located in the biggest mall of Dubai and can be easily visited via the metro. The tickets are also reasonably priced. Plan out a complete day tour to the mall.. As there are lot many shops, fountains and then aquarium to see.
