Went to this place during our viti to the Dubai Mall. The aquarium is good but not too great. The underwater zoo experience was a phenomenal one. From bats to chameleon to crocodile it had it all. The kids simply enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

Well all I can say is it beets any sea life center we've visited in the UK. Recommend getting the explorer ticket, get this on Groupon. The children loved it, and feeding the fish.

a must but expensive is the acquatic tube aquarium. It is very close to your head when you walk through and feels likel you are actually in there with the fish and sharks. Buy your ticket from a machine before you go in.

Although I expected to spend more time in it, it took about an hour and a half. Still it was a pleasant experience, although there are better aquariums in other countries.
