“Really good aquarium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Really worth a visit if your in malta. Have some top notch sets and unusual sea life. Much better than I expected. Take your time to read the information cards as they are really interesting, the staff more than happy to help as well.
Fantastic place.
I would say it is very good value for money.

“National Aquarium”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

The National Aquarium is quite new, in a nicely designed building, which is kept clean. It also has a restaurant and shop in it too.

I really like fish and sea life so it appealed to me to visit. There are some nice species of sea life available to see, some of the tanks the fish are in are well decorated but some are a little bit bare and could be doing with a bit more inside them. There was two divers in feeding the fish, which was good to watch.

I felt that there could certainly have had more detailed descriptions of the sea life on display in each tank and overall a little bit more in the whole aquarium to view. The entry fee is a bit expensive, 12.90 Euro per adult and you can easily see everything within one hour.

Overall it was worth a visit, but it needs a bit of improvement or to drop the price of the entrance fee.

“What a place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The aquarium is very new but the experience is out of this world. All the display tanks represent differing areas, are clean and well-maintained. There are plenty of staff around, all of whom are friendly and knowledgeable, willing to answer questions and generally very helpful. Most enjoyable and, unusually, educational visit, everything from shark eggs to the real thing. SUPERB.
However, the restaurant inside the aquarium do not serve sandwiches, only meals. Hence if you only want a snack I would advise eating before entering. Food in the restaurant is of good quality bu rather expensive.
On the whole a most enjoyable and rewarding experience to be highly recommended and worth another visit.

“Great visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

This is new in Malta and very good. They had sharks eggs saved from a shark that a fisher man has caught. Nice to see they have been rescued. There were lot's of staff around giving you information about the fish and it was good to have that personal touch and made the visit educational as usually you just look at the fish and never read the info next to the tanks!! #Nice new modern building and a nice cafe on the way out although they had stopped serving food so i have no info on that!!
