  • It’s worth a visit but definitely not a must-do. It’s in a shopping center so, as good as it is, it’s never going to be amazing! The Aquarium is pretty good with lots of interactive activities to...  more »
  • Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is one of the largest suspended aquariums in the world. Timings- 10am-12am Location- Dubai Mall You can purchase tickets from various online portals, you get better deals. I recommend you to spend half day at least since it gets interesting if you are nature lover. Thee are lots of things to see and its really knowledgeable specially for kids. Underwater zoo is an amazing experience. The aquarium inside the mall is stunning. The huge glass walls give you a really fantastic view of the variety of animal life they have inside of the tank. Standing outside and looking is all you really need. The tunnel was included in the Dubai pass so we did it. While it is cool, you get the same view from the side as you do in the tunnel. There is an upper floor aquarium that is really cool to go inside and explore. There are lots of different smaller tanks, a few big tanks that hold 2 crocodiles, you can pet sharks, and different birds flying around overhead. This isn't an attraction you would typically expect in a mall, but it is worth the time to explore while you are there
  • Great place with GREAT AMBIENCE. Thousands of water creatures can be seen in Large Aquarium and underwater tunnel. So Many varieties of Marine animals are shown, grown. Well maintained. WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH. MUST VISIT PLACE. Everyone must see the short film shown inside the zoo in television - that how they grow the fishes, feed them, maintains the correct salinity level in aquarium. VERY INFORMATIVE FOR KIDS. NICE photographs can be clicked.
