2 big aquariums and few small aquariums. one of the big aquarium got one HUGE fish that amaze me and my family. Besides aquarium, there are also a marine museum for educational purpose. Just a decent aquarium to me, plus the compound are not that huge makes us completed our visit here in less than an hour.

Nice and interesting aquariums. A bit small and expensive tickets. 70 RM for our family of four. We spended about 1 hour and saw everything. Sponsoring local business! Also bit weird that restaurant outside is selling drinks with straws. In aquarium you got educated about to have less waste and outside they are selling straws!!

As far as aquariums go, the UMS Aquarium could be better - considering that this aquarium is university-led - it could highlight research findings on threats to marine life and the visitors could help.

Very interesting and spectacular. Facilities include free standing exhibition tanks, live open and shallow water reef exhibition centre, a mangrove walk, an interactive multimedia information kiosk and a Sipadan deep dive diorama. We could see an array of colorful marine life.

I visited this place and it took less than half an hour to see all the sea species. It was poorly maintain and the treatment doesn't meet any standard I had back in my own country. It was plain a waste of money and time to experience it unless they make some more improvement then I will consider again but not for now. The entrance fees was ridiculously expensive for tourist.
