Good place to chill out but nothing to special to write home about. I think the ticket price is to high and not worth it.

I loved the Dubai Mall Aquarium. It houses a great collection of marine and freshwater animals. They also have few birds and reptiles. The animal encounter section is great for kids where kids can touch and feel few fishes, small marine creatures.

Whilst wandering around the Dubai mall, we turned a corner and were faced with the massive aquarium. Just seen to be believed. So many different types of fish. I think you can go in the water too if you want too (at a cost obviously).

We spent a few hours wandering around this fabulous aquarium. It was a lovely break from shopping ! Worth a visit

Having seen aquariums in Singapore and Hong Kong, we expected the same, but there was no comparison. The walk through was ok, but the upstairs area was dated and very disappointing

I wouldn’t recommend visiting this aquarium. It is just not worth the money. It is too small and overcrowded. I would recommend visiting The Lost Chambers Aquarium at Atlantis which is incredible.
