    Good for the price. However a big variety of fish would have mad the experience more fun filling. However, would recommend, more of a family thing! They also charge extra if you would like a photo taken off you upon arrival.
    Great Fun

    Staff were extremely friendly and there was a lot of variety. I particular enjoyed the reptile section.
    Average day out
    , Oct 2021
    Just average no wow factor, no presentations or talks. Also very muggy being under ground with face masks on. Then the usual over priced gift shop.
    Aquarium yes, restaurant not
    , Oct 2021
    Experience was great, but do not sit at the restaurant. So called manager or whatever he is (has a black shirt, others have white), is rude and place is not worthy of time and money. Bugibba is beautiful place with much better restaurants with nicer stuff.

    Lovely experience

    The place is not as big as it seems from outside. But the staff is very polite and welcoming, interesting story about the fish presented there. We were invited to watch the feeding of the fish in a biggest tank. Nicely spend time.

    it was average. don't get me wrong I enjoyed seeing the different types of see life but its clear this meant for a family day out and not solo. the best think about the trip was that I paid extra to do the behind the scenes tour which showed the containment area, kitchen , laboratory and above the shark tank, the only complaint have is that the aquarium was just a bit small.

    At the National Aquarium we have 50 tanks with approx 130 species of fish and approx 25 species of insects and reptiles which is relatively a good selection of species. For next time feel free to speak to one of our team members to help you explore more our exhibits and species ... hope to have you with us again very soon

    Great for children and the decor is nice. Other than that, there are no real wow' sea creatures in the aquarium, seems like they are still growing and building. Maybe in another 2-5 years they may have larger and exotic sea animals.
    A really nice morning spent there...

    A really nice morning spent there. The aquarium is in a beautiful location. Inside, the aquarium was beautifully kept and the exhibits were well displayed.
