Indoor educational fun

I like this place, I really really do! The place is technically a zoo, but showcases the ones living underwater, and those reptilians / amphibians animals.

Highly informative, with clear descriptions of the animals on display. I recalled be8ng able to touch the starfish, but all other animals are out of bounds.

Clean, and noy smelly! That is my pet peeve, and that is also the reason I prefer this place to others.

Fun, family-bonding time. It suits the kids just fine, and adults alike.

Highly recommended!

One of the best indoor activity for your young kid in Malacca (Melaka)

Upside: This aquarium make up the small size with technology, it features a 4D cinema, VR experience, interactive content and lots more fun activity to keep your young kid occupied.

Downside: The variety of species is little and the aqurium size is small.

A different pace from the hustle of shopping n crowd
Dec 2019 • Family
Can’t say we didn’t enjoy the visit to the place but there is no “wow” to it either.

The aquatic display is interesting enough to entertain the kids (below 10yrs), and there is enough interactive items (touching some of the fishes n answering the quizzes) to make the visit interesting. But one also notices that the upkeep of the place is poor. Some fishes or even the king Alaska crab was replaced but the display label was not updated. Some display labels were simply removed. The feeding pond is sadly filled space..... don’t bother paying 10RM for the little box of fish-flesh.

Not Worth it

For those who went to the Aquarium at KL dont waste time go to this one at Melaka. Is way smaller then the one in KL and is quite expensive. Not worth it...

Expensive fun
Sep 2019 • Family
For those of you who have been to KLCC Aquaria, you will notice that there's a stark difference. The Shore Oceanarium lacks exotic species and most of their marine life are of the common types found in a good aquarium shop. To make up for the expensive ticket prices, they have virtual reality games, 3D Art and movie and extras like badges and fridge magnets. My kids had fun so I'm ok but I can't help feeling if they removed these extras, the ticket prices shouldn't be that expensive.
On a side note, the mall this oceanarium is in looks like many shops might close.

More things to see than expected
Jul 2019 • Family
My expectation for this aquarium was not high because it is like located in a dead shopping mall. It turns out to be a surprised. I think the variety of things to see inside is good for its size. Our kids really enjoy it.

The only thing I would suggest is to check the ticket price before you pay. They tend to include all the optional items for you without your notice.

Exceeded my expectations
Jun 2019 • Family
We wanted to bring our toddler to do some kid’s activities and thought the oceanarium would be a good idea. At first I was skeptical as the oceanarium was located in a hotel cum shopping centre. I was proven wrong very fast. They had good exhibits, 3D theatre and good staff. We enjoyed our time and will definitely recommend to our friends and family. Good job all the staff!
