From previous visits this would have been a five however our most recent visit was dissapointing.

This was mainly due to the failure to enforce physical distancing and mask wearing among visitors by security. At one point after a man repeatedly stood far too close to my son and I whilst hooking his mask under his chin for photos and repeatedly ignoring my requests (in English and BM) to keep apart I approached the security guard. It took 3 requests before he even moved and then he failed to actual enforce proper mask wearing. The venue should have ejected this visitor.

The fish and other animals stocked all appear to be in good health and the otter feeding "show" was impressive, something that we've not seen on previous visits. However there is a distinct lack of information about what you are seeing. It all feels a bit like the Instagram setting is valued ahead of the educational potential. The aquarium in Langkawi is far superior to this establishment.

Crowding had been a serious issue before. We first visited in Oct 19 and actually asked to leave via a fire exit as we felt unsafe due to the huge overcrowding. Thankfully numbers were far lower on subsequent visits although since then we've always made a point of only going on weekdays avoiding public holidays.

It’s a wonderful place strategically located at KLCC. I got my ticket booked through my hotel Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur concierge staff. The website serves few information but I found it lacking the concept of e-booking and purchase of ticket like PETRONAS tower visit offers. I would be great if they introduce online purchase of tickets.
The ticket itself was for 85 myr. At time of entrance they take 03 pictures of yours which you can see and get them for yourself at the end of tour after being edited for 80 myr for soft copies only. Which I believe is a little on the costly side, the hard copies are above 100 myr I can’t remember since I did not opt for it.

Then at the the tunnel they again take 4 pictures of yours and you can see them at end and you can choose between soft copy or hard. Again the price I found it to be on the costly side as I had to pay 80 myr to get my soft copied of 4 copies. So I paid 160 myr in total for 7 photos.

The also have a souvenir shop at the end.

It roughly takes around 45 mins to explore it.

The best time is to go between 3-5 pm as they feed the fishes and octopus so you get to see it as well..

They also offer rage cage in which they take you down in a cage with scuba diving gears on to dive with sharks around in their tanks. But the website has no information about its booking at all. Once I reached there I came to know it can only be booked 7 days ahead.

Again I would urge them to make the website mor friendly in terms of bookings and e tickets.

It’s a good place for kids and adults !

Informative and entertaining.

We thought they had good SOPs in place as mentioned in their website but we were wrong. Booked a slot for our visit but no one checked when we got there and everyone was allowed in regardless they booked or not. It was so crowded that social distancing was impossible, and we saw more of people's backs than the exhibits. Many visitors also took off their mask for photos and while talking to each other. Ventilation was bad and it was hot and stuffy. One would have to stand and wait and then jostle to the front if you wanted to see the exhibits close up. We were out of the place in less than 20 minutes (wanted to leave earlier but we got caught in the slow moving crowd). It was a total waste of money and so disappointed with Aquaria for not maintaining the crowd properly and endangering the health of young kids and families.

we are required to book a slot to visit via website. mentioned in website that we get half price ticket for OKU but ticket for OKU not available online. we came right on time as booked but visitor are a lot! there’s ongoing speaker to remind you of social distancing but no staff to monitor that! and visitor are hopeless too, especially while in the tunnel, no distancing at all, poor ventilation, very stuffy and hot.
aquaria need to upgrade their covid19 SOP enforcement.. easily can start an ‘aquaria cluster’ if this continues.

Do NOT visit on a weekend. They don't seem to limit admissions at all and we were elbow-to-elbow with others. The moving sidewalk in the tunnel was not working, there were no staff to nudge people along, and there was no ventilation in the tunnel. As a result it was very hot and felt like a very high COVID risk. Anyone with claustrophobia would have had a very difficult time.

The exhibits were well done and emphasized the impacts of human behaviours on the marine environment. (I will never forget the shark finning video - horrific.) But unfortunately the crowding made it impossible to see many exhibits or to learn from them.

Pros. It's a nice experience on a not too busy day. Lovely photo opportunity with family. The tunnel through the tank is nice. Lots of interesting exhibits.

Cons. Quite claustrophobic inside, must be crazy on weekends. Website says 2 hours but is finished in less than one hour which is a bit disappointing. Too many gimmicks and trying to sell things inside and entrance fee is a bit high for such a small place.

If you want to get covid and pay for it, this is the place for you. This place is a money grab, compressing as many people that'll fit. Inadequate ventilation and cooling to make this an unpleasant warm and humid environment. You can tell where they are putting their staff-at the gift shop. No one is on the floor to mind the people and traffic. Go to a nice pet store and you'll see better examples of small aquariums because it's mostly this. There seems be less sharks than previous times, and as with all things Malaysian, the place is nice when new and everything else is a patchwork when things break. The conveyor is broken, and the heat stifling.

A great attraction to visit in KLCC. Impressed with the amount of sharks available and how organized it is. Great selection of souvenirs at the gift shop! recommend to go at opening time as later in the day there is a long waiting line which took me 35 minutes to reach entrance.

My son and I had a fun and informative visit at Aquaria KLCC.
We came just in time for the shark-feeding session which was fun as well.
We just wished that crowd control was more enforced or limit to a certain number of visitors each slot as it was a bit crowded inside.
