be careful with entry charge, they charge extra
Mar 2021 • Family
The aquarium is good in general but needs more sea creatures to be added.
The problem about the staff who lack the experience to work.
The worst thing today my wife and two children went but they charged them for two adults and one child although she insisted that the eldest child is 10 years, do not if the have shortage of money so they decide to cheat people( for any one who will say why do not you go back to them, I will not drive 40 min and spend petrol for 2 Rials).
If I was there I would deal with them but they took the change of a lady alone and took extra money.

Entry ticket too high and not what you see inside at the Aquarium is really not really value for money.
Mar 2021 • Family
The value charged for entry is too high compared to what is the value of what is viewed at the Aquarium.
Weather it is a Child ticket or an Adult ticket.

Surprisingly the Aquarium is showcasing less of the actual Fishery and Aqua creatures available in the Oman waters.

So according to my personal opinion the set up is too Commercial just to attract people to that mall as it is almost 60 kms out of Muscat City.

It is nice and fun
Jan 2021 • Family
Its a nice place for children to see some fish, turtles, crocodiles and pinguins. The place is smaller than in Dubai or Lisbon and the animals are so too. But balance between price and value is given. It takes you max 45 min to go through - maybe even less if its not too crowded. Kids will love it.

Pros: Entry options for different experiences, can feed fish starting from golden tickets, has penguins.
Cons: Not particularly wide on sealife variety, and needs more bathrooms & additional seating areas.

Really well done
Jan 2020 • Family
We had been meaning to visit since it opened last year and were really impressed. Well laid out with good signage, the main habitat is mesmerising. Only critical observation is that some of the habitats seem too small and it is still a bit pricey while they recover the investment.

Located in the Mall of Muscat, the Oman Aquarium is the largest aquarium in the Middle East.

Though not as enormous as the Aquarium in Singapore, viewing the varied species of Marine animals displayed here was an absolutely splendid experience.

Overall a good visit.

Visit to Oman Aquarium
Nov 2019
Oman Aquarium is located in the Mall of Muscat. Good arrangements and on payment of additional fee, we may be able to see the feeding of sharks, fish and turtles.
Well arranged and the photo corner is nice which helps us to carry a memento. the gift shop is also good.

Totally rubbish and a waste of money
Oct 2019
Don’t waste your time at this place it’s a joke. I went there first and was told they have a special offer which is available during the week and it’s half price so I paid a high price for a taxi only to arrive there and was greeted by being told this offer is only applicable between 10 am and 2 pm which wasn’t mentioned to me when I first enquired so I spoke to a so-called supervisor called Muhammad who was ignorant rude and thought it was okay to make a laugh and a joke about it with the staff in his own language which proved he was totally uncivilised I then complained to the wonderful lady in the gift shop who put me onto the manager who promised that we will have a free trip the next day when I arrived he changed his mind as well and wanted me to pay I got fed up and after paying for three taxi rides and decided to go and see this dreadful place. The manage was a total joke and offered a gold service which meant go behind the scenes to feed the fish which was led by girl who I could barely understand and this lasted for ten mins. Normally you would pay a high price for his rubbish addition.

All they do is show you a pod with a freshly imported fish and that’s it.

Total disgrace and dishonest place ripping people off. Avoid it at all costs. Don’t say you were not warned.

Wonderful experience!
Aug 2019
We went there during the week long Eid break recently. It is located inside Mall of Muscat. There was a Eid discount of 20% in the entry fees. The normal entry fees is RO. 8.500 (approx $21) for adults & RO 6.500 (approx $17) for kids.

There are several varieties of fishes on display inside which are very nicely explained as well. It is a very good place for kids and i am sure they will enjoy the place.

There was also a diver's show (3 shows of 10 mins duration each) at 4 pm, 6 pm & 8 pm. In the show they tell you about how the diver's communicate inside water and what type of gear they wear. Very informative!!

Must visit place!
