We opted for the National Aquarium since it was a very windy day with some showers. We took our time with our toddler to walk around and discover the different fish and tanks. Its a good way to spend some time away from the bad (or hot) weather. Was a bit overcrowded to pay and at times also whilst walking around - would have expected some more restrictions on entrance due to COVID.

We decided to visit the National Aquarium by bus from our Mellieha hotel, since they were charging 20 Euros each way for a 5 km journey. We saved some money but wasted 60 minutes total wait time (we had to change buses on the way out.) The aquarium is in a spectacular location, overlooking a huge bay. Its external architecture is impressive, the form of a giant starfish. We had '3 Euros off' vouchers from our hotel, but were told that they apply only to the Adult ticket, not the Seniors ticket. The exhibits were OK, but many of the fish were plain silver, reflecting the Mediterranean location. There is one walk-through shark, big fish and ray tunnel, but those who have visited aquaria in the USA will view the whole aquarium experience as rather disappointing.

Very nice aquarium and a nice experience on a rainy day on Malta!

But I wouldn’t go there again because at least half of the visitors don’t wear their face masks properly which I consider as very dangerous. I didn’t feel comfortable at all and I wouldn’t recommend going there!
We told the staff to tell the other visitors to wear the masks, but they pretended not seeing any visitors without masks! Very unprofessional behaviour! We told the staff at least 3 times :(. We didn’t feel safe! Safety should be priority in these times!!!

We visited the aquarium whilst on a week long holiday in Malta, and this was definitely one of the more expensive attractions that we visited, and that was even with senior citizens’ discounts (€11.90 per person). That being said, we found it interesting and the exhibits well laid out and well maintained. We spent over an hour looking around and it wasn’t too bad a way to spend a bit of time.

Gorgeous location. Unfortunately we just found it all far too hot. The queue took ages when we arrived and there was very little air con. The kids were asked to wear masks even though they hadn't needed to anywhere else in Malta. This meant we had to buy them and it caused some tantrums. 4 and 5 are very young to be wearing masks. The aquarium is very well done but as it's all underground, it was stifling down there. It ruined it for us to be honest.

This is a nice aquarium, but not to big - it takes about 30 minutes to go through and see everything. It is allowed to take photos, but only without flash. At the entrance, the staff measures everyone's temperature and everyone has to provide their names and phone numbers for covid tracking purposes (one name and phone number per family). There are very nice fish and other underwater creatures to be seen. In the shark tank, I saw only zebra shark and black tip reef shark, not sure if there was any other kind or sharks. Next to the aquarium, there is also a restaurant, but we didn't try it. This is a very good attraction with children, especially when it is raining outside.

With its location and housed within an impressive building we expected to experience a large variety of aquatic life we don't see back home.

Unfortunately this small tour lasted only 20mins with us wondering if we'd perhaps taken a wrong turn a long the way.

We saw most of the same animals on display we would at our local aquarium at home which was an unexpected let down.

For an adult couple this wasn't the best experience Malta has to offer but perhaps better suited to families with children.

There is a better way to spend Your money than to pay 12 euro/person for being constantly bullying by staff (almost everyone there), who were stalking us whether we wear a mask correctly and harassing if not. Come on, who is happy about anything like that on their holiday!! Otherwise, quite small (done 1 hour) for the amount payed, too. We were a group of even 11 people and everyone agreed on this, moreover, we even regreted to support this organisation with this huge money (for 11 persons) considering their attitude! Well, customer service and human professionalism and kind communication matters! (Especially on such special holiday)

A nicely laid out aquarium with a nice variety of species on display. We got free entry as part of our tour bus ticket, but i don't think it is too pricey. well worth a walk around and have a chill out by the sea after.

Our visit here was poor value and very disappointing. There are some very interesting sea creatures but very little information provided about them. No talks or interactivity and you can be back out in 30 minutes.

I also have some concern about the enclosures and how the creatures are kept. Some (not all) of the tanks, although clean, appear over populated and I was upset that some of the creatures in the reptile and insect area did not have fresh food. I keep stick insects myself so know how to care for them and the stick insect enclosures at the aquarium were overcrowded and the leaves meant to be food were dead and shrivelled. Poor creatures.

Hi, thank you for having taken your time to provide us with your feedback relating to your visit. We are sorry that we fell short of your expectations. The Malta National Aquarium has 49 tanks which consist of different sizes, with over 150 species of fish and different species of insects and reptiles. With regards to the information about the species, all tanks are usually serviced with a tablet giving information on the species in that tank . Apart from that, we normally have staff roaming around the aquarium, ready to answer any of your questions. Due to the COVID-19 regulations imposed by the government, both the tablets and the roaming staff are not currently possible. However, visitors can still access information about each thanks using your mobile phone by scanning the QR codes provided near every tank. The same applies for our 7 daily talks and interactive activities, which unfortunately are not being held at the moment. About the stick insects and other animals in the Reptiles Area, our aquarists are always keeping a close eye on the animals of course, and fresh food is given to them. In fact, this is the only section in the whole Aquarium in which the animals are fed with live food. Our stick insects have been with us for over 5 years for many generations, being very healthy and eating fresh leaves only.
