Museum/Aquarium right on the Marina
Mar 2020
A small museum that talks about ocean and sea life conservation. You watch an quick movie about conservation and then go upstairs to see the exhibits. There are many things to look at with a microscope. Talking about fishing and sea life.
They have a small water area where they sometimes have rescued animals. We saw a sea turtle that was going to be released back to the wild.
This would be a great place for kids. Nice on a hot day.

Interesting place for little kids
Feb 2017 • Family
It is a small science musem about the history, exploring, and aminals of the sea. I thought the displays and facilities were relatively nice comparing to size of the museum. There were lots of kids from local schools to have a class there with their teachers. If you have kids with your traveling plan, that place should be good choice to you.

Attraction for kids
Jan 2017 • Couples
Pleasant marine museum in a modern building in Malaga port area. Small fish/octopus tanks on one floor, marine artifacts, overpriced for what they offer. Great for kids, interactive. As adults, we'd skip it.

New museum of sealife around Malaga
Nov 2016 • Couples
New small two storey museum with aquarium and large number of static exhibits about local sealife. Highlights were large tank with rescued sea turtle recuperating before release (the 4th one this year), preserved specimens of very large squid and viewing platform looking across the harbour. Large collection of seashells.

An Enjoyable Museum
Feb 2016 • Couples
The Museo Alborania is an enjoyable museum because its focus is the nearby sea called the Mar de Alboran. The museum stesses conservation of the natural resources of the sea. I enjoy seeing the collection of sea shells and the museum store is very good.

Interesting museum at the port
Oct 2015 • Couples
Cost of entry to this museum was included in the ticket for the Malaga tour bus. We'd already spotted it on an earlier walk around the port & were planning to visit anyway during our holiday. What a bonus to find it covered by the bus tour ticket!
We had thought that it was more of an aquarium than museum from the outside but, once inside, discovered that it was a very good introduction to the maritime history & ecology of the area. A film at the start of your visit explains the special & unique significance of the area.
Lots of interesting displays, most not behind glass, & several hands on experiences for younger visitors. The skeleton display is amazing, if only for the sheer size & scale of the creatures they represent.
Whilst I loved the sea turtles & appreciate the conservation/rescue element they reflected, I was concerned about the size of tank they were confined in & some of the behaviours that they were exhibiting.
Not the biggest museum I've visited but a good mix of historical, biological & geological exhibits.

Turtle rehab
Oct 2015 • Couples
A small museum that does good work in saving the lives of turtles that have been rescued, brought back to health and then released back to the sea. The museum also shows how shells were used in the past as currency, hands on activities to see how radar etc operates. There is an educational area where school children can be taught about sea creatures, the importance of the sea and shown fossils of whale bones etc.

Disgusting!
Jul 2015 • Solo
Don't spend your money there! I took them a severely injured seagull and they completely ignored it. The cranky man at the door told me without even looking me in the eyes that they don't take any responsability on these birds. The funny thing is that they sell seagull souvenirs at the entrance! Looks like the only animals of interest for them are the ones that can be put in a box and make money. I'm gutted and disgusted!

POOR EXAMPLE OF A MUSEUM HALF A DOZEN FISH TANKS & SHELL COLLECTION
Jul 2015 • Family
3 adults and one child = 26 euros. This poor example of a museum is a waste of time and money. Avoid, houses a shell collection, some info on local fishing history and half a dozen small fish tanks too high for young kids to see. More fish in local pet shop!
Two large turtles in too smaller tank is just cruel.

Sealife rehab center and museum
Jun 2015 • Family
Interesting museum / exhibit centre in the port of Malaga which is great to visit now as there are pristine new restaurants all over.... the Museum has interesting maritime info about Malaga and the Med and has lots of interactive bits for kids ..such as navigation video desk,microscopes to investigate loads of stuff !! worth a visit .. awkward opening times so beware ! you may get to see live turtles or other rescued marine stuff in the big tanks.
