  • Fantastic place to spend time with kids. Maybe not so impressive loke Dubai Mall one, however has one biggest advantage (regardless price ;) you can see the fish separately and admire the same aquarium from diffrent perspective, so kids may focus and profit more. Same ticket for naval museum (take something on, as AC is crazy). Nice and well shaded play area in between museums
  • My only opinion is. AMAZING. WHY? Cheap. Also my kids r 3 and 4. They had a lovely time. My son who is 3 was soo excited he didn't stop jumping around from start to finish. I really wanted to take them to Dubai Mall Aquarium, but to be honest we saved money and they loved it. The restaurant around the corner however was pricey. Maybe way before or go just a little further after.
  • A simple yet satisfying, and cheap aquarium. At the entrance you can take a photograph to the back of a green screen, which you can buy if you like it. Soon you'll be greeted by various fish species, fun facts, and a few history lessons. Escalator is available, and moving with a stroller is easy. Near the end, there is a coffee and gift shop, and a balcony––a truly beautiful display of water and land. Highly recommended.
  • Not the biggest of places but still plenty of things to see. Some of the displays feel old and in need of sprucing up but never the less this is still a great place to come. Not overly expensive and your entry ticket also gives you access to the maritime museum opposite. There are also shows outside
  • Excellent place to visit. Aquarium had been maintained very clean and opportunity to see fishes turtles and other sea creatures closely.
