Alexandria Aquarium is a small aquarium in Alexandria, Egypt. It was built in 1930 and is near Qaitbay fort on Alexandria's Eastern Harbour. The aquarium exhibits many species from the Mediterranean and Red Seas around Egypt, as well as some freshwater species from the Nile and the Amazon. Animals on display range from fish to crustaceans and turtles (both marine and freshwater). The Aquarium is also home to the Marine Research Institute..

Aquarium Museum Reviews
If you are considering a trip to Alexandria, no, in fact Egypt - this is a must see! This museum should be THE NO. 1 best destination in Egypt, no, the northern hemisphere! I truly cannot believe it..... more »
A small museum with some interesting and nice looking marine creatures, Mashallah! Does not worth a special visit but if available in the area, worth seeing. more »
Great place for all family members Scientific place Educational place You will be happy to sea different types of fishes and to discover the deep sea world Its really adorable Kids enjoyed to the max
An average small and cheap aquarium 10EGP. Each tank in the aquarium can be seen by 3-4 people at once so if its crowded you wont enjoy your time, the most interesting tank was the turtles and crocodiles. I wouldn't recommend someone to specifically go to this place as there are more other places worth seeing.
