  • If you love sea creatures, this is a must visit during your time in Malta. Not spectacular but very impressive for being in such a small Island like Malta. Great size aquariums and a wide variety of species. If you take your time viewing each room, you can easily spend 1 and a half hour here. If you breeze through it, you can finish it in 30 min. The tunnel aquarium was the highlight of this place. Great experience! Wish there was more interactive displays where the staff would do live feedings or where kids can touch the starfishes or the different types of corals. 5 star is if entrance price was lower.
  • This place was great - full tanks, but not over flowing; clearly the fish and other animals they have there are very well taken care of. We took a guided tour of the back of house to see how things worked and this was great. The guide was very knowledgeable and managed to answer all of our questions as well as other things we would never have thought to ask! Great few hours spent here. Well worth a visit to anyone going to Malta.
