“Lovely..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The only thing we were disappointed in was it only took half hour to go round the aquarium, and as it cost 12.90 each half and hour is pretty slack.. But it was lovely and our 4 year old son loved it!!

“Nice Modern and a very unique experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Good Staff. They had explained to us on each area about the fish that there where in each tank.
But for a family its quite a bit expensive. Well its worth to see it once you are in Malta. You need around 2 hours to see it all. Cameras are allowed but with no flash.

“Top Quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

The price tag of 12.90 for adults and 6 for kids may seem on the high side but i think it compares well with overseas attractions. The approach from the outside and inside are lovely and the architecture is tasteful and modern. The staff are very helpful and approach you while nearing individual aquaria and give good explanations about these amazing creatures both in English & Maltese (im not sure about other languages). The Aquaria themselves are amazing and extremely interesting and so is the whole experience. I also really liked the mural paintings and the submarine replica. Overall a great experience and would definately recommend it to anyone.

“Quiet expensive to go as a family... but interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

It is a quiet good attraction for tourists to visit to understand the seas of Malta. Apart of fish various painting are there of the maltese culture.
But the cost is high which is a disadvantage to a family money wise.
