The Shore Oceanarium describes itself as the ‘new premier tourist attraction in Melaka’. It is a fun and educational place to bring the kids and enjoyable for adults too.
Being brand new (opened in 2015) it looks clean and fresh and contains some of the latest in aquarium technology such as 3D movies and information boards (3D glasses are provided with a combo ticket).
Visitors are encouraged to find answers to a quiz form using the information boards provided as you walk around the oceanarium. A completed form with the correct answers can be redeemed for a souvenir at the gift shop.
A nice new addition to Melaka’s many attractions and a great place to bring the kids, especially if it’s raining outside. The staff are friendly and well trained.
Tickets are not very cheap but I suppose it costs a lot to maintain this type of attraction. And it is still cheaper than Aquaria KLCC or Underwater World Langkawi.
Overall I would rate this as the second best oceanarium in Malaysia, after Aquaria KLCC.
Open daily from 10.30 am to 9 pm (last admission 8pm).
Adult RM 35
Children (90cm & above or age 3 – 12) RM 25
Senior (60 and above) RM 25
These tickets include entry, 3D glasses and souvenir item.
