Malta National Aquarium Reviews
We enjoyed our visit and were impressed. It's quite small but very well laid-out and planned. It was quite busy but visitors flowed smoothly and one could see the exhibits easily and comfortably. Ther... more »
Lovely but smaller than expected and not a huge variety of fish to see despite the 49 tanks. You can't really spend more than an hour here. The cafe is almost bigger than the aquarium! more »
Really enjoyed this. Good way to pass 45minutes. Some of the fish are absolutely amazing. Well worth a visit if in the area! The cafe that's in there is also fantastic. We were blown away with how good the pizza was! Was easily one of the best we'd had in the 10 days we had in Malta!
Really well presented aquarium, interesting layout with the tanks built underground around a mocked up submarine and a viewing tunnel under the largest tank. There are useful and informative interactive information screens. There's also information about the world climate change as monitored by satellite and a display and info about the damage plastic is doing to the oceans. Which makes it very strange then that you go to the restaurant to be served a drink with a single use plastic straw and to the gift shop full of plastic stuff, I guess going green is great for a display but not if it's going to affect the sale of milkshake and low quality toys.
