This aquarium has a wonderful array of animals and displays from around the world. The crowds made viewing quite difficult at times and the building itself is looking a bit tired and worn.

WHALE SHARKS!!!! Need I say more? This place was amazing; the exhibits we creative and had so much to see. Loved learning about and seeing new creatures. Very convenient if you are staying at or near Universal. Just don’t fall for the 1st gift shop...More

It was crowded that I could barely see the animals, and on the top of that, it was so smelly which made me want to leave as soon as possible.

Not usually an aquarium person, but it was definitely an experience! you even get to touch some of the marine animals just before you finish at the aquarium. Malls and food options nearby is disappointing though.

It was a Sunday but still the manner in which the first part of the aquarium is arranged limits the number of people that can see for example the river otters. We simply walked right passed all the top floor rainforest exhibits as you simply...More

Whilst some displays could be a little larger or more dynamic, overall the creatures seemed well cared for in a clean environment. It’s good for kids to learn about the ocean and it’s inhabitants and get an appreciation of nature. Lots of variety and not...More

The kids were excited to visit the aquarium, and from the first 30 minutes it kept them occupied. But after 30 minutes, you would realise that the main attraction is a big aquarium on the middle of the building, and you spend time just walking...More

Check if your hotel sells the tickets. we stayed at universal port and they sold the tickets and ferry tickets also. Very easy and not crowded day we went. Never saw any lines to get it. Well organised. Enjoy.
